"Absolutely stunning, wonderful, sensory show."

Audience feedback

Coronavirus update: Due to the government’s recent advice to limit public gatherings and social activities, and in conversation with venues and schools, the rest of our Jamboree 2020 tour has been cancelled. 

It’s time to make some noise! JAMBOREE is a vibrant piece of gig-theatre made for and with teenagers with have profound and multiple learning disabilities. Each tune in the gig has been co-created with a young person who is non-verbal. Audiences experience live Balkan music, colourful tactile costumes, sousaphone vibrations and interactive music and noise making.

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.

Interactive, creative sessions inspired by the sensory moments in Jamboree,
designed for families to try at home.
