Friendly Bombs Theatre Company

Theatre Workshops

We always like to develop skills and knowledge about theatre.

We have attended theatre workshops at Shakespeare's Globe and Royal Court Theatre in London to learn about specific plays and performance skills.

We have also visited The Imperial War Museum and attended an educational workshop about The First World War in preparation for Journey's End.

Dance Workshops

We have worked with Matthew Bourne's New Adventures Dance Company to develop our movement skills.

Maidenhead Drama Festival

Each year we enter our play into this mainstream theatre festival for one act plays, where we are judged against other theatre groups and have the chance to perform on the main stage at Norden Farm Arts Centre.

Safeguarding Training

We have delivered courses for The Fremantle Trust, Buckinghamshire Care and Bucks Adult Learning about Safeguarding. These courses are bespoke for the services. Our members and volunteers create acted out scenarios of issues of abuse and bad practice that are potential risks in a care setting. We work with the participants on strategies to recognise these safeguarding concerns for themselves and develop their own methods to address their response when an issue occurs. Courses have been devised for Staff, and also we have delivered courses for service users with learning disabilities and for service users with profound and multiple disabilities. We charge £400 for a half day training course.
