Not Back To School Week

Mon, 12/09/2016 (All day) - Fri, 16/09/2016 (All day)
Northern Ireland
At W5 last year in Not Back To School Week

Every year we make a special effort to have an exciting week near the start of September - it allows us to welcome those starting their first year of home education, to reconnect after the summer, to kick start our year...

Everyone should feel free to organise their own events - and if they clash with others, or spill into other weeks, then don't worry too much - the more options and excitement we have then the better NBTSW'16 will be!

The group at the performance of the last show


Two projects: Ages 10+ & Ages 4-9

We look forward to seeing some new faces and are particularly keen to meet some new teens!

Start Date: Monday 25th April, 11am to 12pm weekly until end of June with a display for friends and family.

To facilitate all interested young people at the appropriate level, make it easier for parents, and for health and safety reasons, there will be two drama projects that run at the same time in the same venue.  Please note that these are creative learning workshop programmes that build incrementally and are not individual classes.

Places are limited and priority will go to those who completed the first NSKA programme and their siblings.   The age bands are important in order to be able to produce programmes that are safe, focused, enjoyable and beneficial to all participants.

Drama Programme for young people aged 10+

(young people who took part in the first project and who will be ten before September may choose to remain in this group). 

Drama programme for children aged 4 to 9

(siblings of young people in the older group will be prioritized). 

This group is limited to 12 maximum and will be musical theatre based.   

Both groups will have the opportunity to socialize after the workshops and bring a packed lunch to eat together in the communal area. 

There will be a small charge of £2 per week per child this is to contribute towards heating costs, insurance and workshop materials.

(should this be problematic please private mail me, the charge should not prohibit participation).
