Thank you Rosey, this sounds fantastic.

If you are a teacher or are working with young people, we just wanted to let you know about a great opportunity surrounding our show, "Before I Leave" - on 2nd and 8th of June there will be post-show discussions with writer, Patrick Jones and emerging director Gavin Porter, which will offer a fascinating insight to the writing and rehearsal process.  Also, if anyone would be interested in bringing a group along for a backstage tour, we would be very happy to welcome you.  For more information please do get in touch,

If anyone working with 14-25s could spread the word about Arts Active's summer project - it's free to participate and working with great organisations - Literature Wales, NoFit State, Earthfall Dance, Community Music Wales and more.  This year we're running a steering group to give young people even more input into the run up to the show and our first meeting is this Saturday:

Those interested can sign up on Eventbrite here:

Hi Mark, it would be good to meet with you at your event in May to hear more about your project.  With regard to funding, there are numerous funding opportunities available through Arts Council Wales.  Let me know when your information evening will be, many thanks.

Hi Bill, thank you so much for sharing, these sound like fantastic projects.  Do you have any more information on The Lighting Path resource?

Hey everyone - just to introduce myself, I'm Mark, founder of Ingite Theatre and graduate from USW Newport Apploed Drama degree. I am currently working on a partnership with my company and London Bubble Theatre, to launch a drama intervention for children in KS1 with speech, language and communication difficulties in the Newport / South Wales area. We are holding an info evening sometime in May for any interested schools. I'd also like to to connect with anyone who may know where I can go for possible funding for projects like this. Thanks!

Ann from Small World Theatr and Tim Brew who is schools advisor on sustainability for pembs are developing a teaching resource today in the Model school Carmarthen after pupils have seen our latest show The Lightning Path. Tim is also a scientist and ex teacher so this resource may be of interest to anyone dealing with sustainability in schools and teaching . Our previous resource concerning fishing is still available  on our site where you can alsoget details of our work with story telling in an intercultural project recently in Cardiff and west Wales schools devised with people from the West African diaspora.  ps my last two comments did not appear on this page ?? I'll check if this fails to pop up

Our next show, Before I Leave, will be a great experience for anyone age 14+ and we will be hosting post-show talks at the performances on 2nd and 8th of June.  If anyone is interested in bringing school or home educated groups along and would like a backstage tour, please do let me know.  Also, don't forget that you can now apply for the 'Go and See' fund to help with costs - as part of the Lead Creative Schools Scheme, the Arts Council of Wales' new funding stream will allow schools to apply for small one-off grants of up to £1,000 to fund visits to arts events in galleries, theatres, arts centres and other venues.
