What we love for Christmas

Instead of posting out thousands of Christmas cards, we’ve made a donation to Scene & Heard. They’re a unique mentoring project that partners inner-city children of Somers Town in London with volunteer theatre professionals. They give the children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays. The plays are then performed by professional actors.

The result is regular theatre productions that will blow you out of your seat. Michael Billington called it an evening of spiralling fantasy.

Scene & Heard raises children’s aspirations, boosts their self-esteem, and improves literacy, communication and social skills. We love them and their incredible work. If you love words, theatre or both, you will too. Watch their brilliant video to find out more.
