This 4-day multi-sensory storytelling workshop is not to be missed!

For young people with SEND aged 7-12, our multi-sensory workshops will get you up on your feet exploring the world around you through drama and dance.

The summer school will improve young people’s confidence, storytelling and social skills and ends with a sharing in the Mercury Theatre Studio for parents, carers and friends to enjoy.

Designed to meet the needs of all participants in a fun, engaging and inclusive environment, this four-day summer school is just £20* per young person! This activity is made possible thanks to funding from Essex Short Breaks.

Each day runs from 10.30am to 3pm.

*Young people must have an Essex Short Breaks Passport Number. If you are currently not registered with Essex Short Breaks, please register here.

Our work at the Mercury is always participant centred and participants are the focus of our decision making, delivery and outlook. Our activities are designed to develop the independence and confidence of the young people involved. Therefore, we would kindly ask that parents and carers are not present in the session so we can support your young person to flourish independently within a safe, creative environment. The only session this excludes is our SEND Party Nights (when a carer/parent ticket has been bought). We are unable to provide 1:1 support or specialist care for young people involved in our activities and we do understand that sometimes a parent/carer presence is unavoidable or required and so we are happy to discuss this on a case-by-case basis. Please do make us aware of this preference when booking. Thank you for your understanding and please do get in contact if you wish to discuss this further.

Please note: We are following the current Government roadmap for a safe re-opening and we will continue to take all measures to keep audiences and participants safe, in accordance with up-to-date Government guidelines. All Creative Engagement activity will maintain social distancing, and provide hand sanitisation stations. For further info on how we are keeping everyone safe please visit here.
