A Platform to Help Build Confidence
Bedford Borough Council's Integrated Youth Support Service and
Starlight Productions Bedfordshire are working together to produce
a drama workshop for young people during February half-tem, at the
John Bunyan Upper School, Mile Road, Bedford.
Rebecca Preen, a local children's playwright, will deliver these
drama workshops for pupils all week, in partnership with the
Integrated Youth Support Service, from 9 – 4.30pm (Monday 15th –
Friday 19th Feb), in preparation for the performance to be held at
the school on Friday 19th February, at 5.30pm – 6.30pm.
This is a great opportunity to for young people to have fun and
realise their full potential, and to build their confidence.
Cllr David Sawyer, portfolio holder for Children’s Services said:
“This type of workshop is often very expensive and therefore rather
exclusive; only open to those who can afford to pay. In this
instance, funding has been secured via Bedford Borough Council's
Integrated Youth Support Service, to enable these young people to
participate in a project which they may had not otherwise had
The John Bunyan students will perform their show to parents,
friends and members of Bedford Borough Council.
