It’s time to make some noise! JAMBOREE is a vibrant piece of gig-theatre made for and with teenagers who have profound and multiple learning disabilities (age 12+). Let our Balkan band guide you and your friends and family through a colourful world, where the music can be felt through your whole body. Using tunes co-created with young people who have profound and multiple learning disabilities, JAMBOREE is a sensory theatrical riot like no other.

Access note: Please be aware that JAMBOREE will be a highly sensory/stimulating experience. There is loud amplified sound, strong lighting effects, and a mirrored floor.
