Every year Actionwork® produces the national and international Anti-Bullying Roadshow. This tours to schools, youth clubs, colleges, universities and parent groups all over the UK and abroad. Each year we link the theme of the roadshow with the theme for Anti-Bullying Week. Previous roadshows have included: Cyber Tears, The Science of Bullying, Chronicle of a Bully, Cyber Scream, Clash, and Silent Scream. Our anti-bullying roadshow has been called the ultimate theatre-in-education experience.
The Roadshow is an amazing event.
We will be touring 5 roadshows:
1) Anti Bullying Roadshow for Secondary schools, colleges and adults
2) Anti-Bullying Roadshow for lower end of Primary schools (years 3 and 4)
3) Anti-Bullying Roadshow for upper end of Primary schools (years 5 and 6)
4) Anti Bullying Puppet show for the young ones (nursery, year 1 and 2's)
AND - one specialist Roadshow for advanced groups, peer mentors, peer supporters, ambassadors, trainers and teachers.
The Anti-Bullying Roadshow is high impact production that is positive, fun and engaging. It is suitable for main stream and special schools. Each year we have primary and secondary school versions. The Anti-Bullying Roadshow provides an important focus, for schools' anti-bullying campaigns and provides that 'WOW' factor to students and teachers alike complimenting existing anti-bullying work in schools, colleges and community centres. The Roadshow allows schools and other groups to make a strong statement of non-tolerance towards bullying, while giving their students and young people the chance to explore the issues, and the importance of their own role in dealing with it. The Roadshow's dual goal is awareness-raising and empowerment.
Actionwork's anti-bullying roadshows have attracted widespread acclaim during recent tours, from audiences, host venues and the media alike. To be clear:
- The Roadshow can be performed four times in one day
- The Roadshow can be performed to a whole year group at a time
- The Roadshow raises key questions within the issues
- The Roadshows are highly entertaining, as well as being powerful, evocative and thought provoking
- Roadshows can be mixed. For example; a primary school can have a puppet show for reception to year 2's, a lower primary show for years 3-4 and an upper primary roadshow for years 5 and 6's if they want - all in one day.
