Far Far Away

Far Far Away is our youth programme for 8-13 year olds, we run playful and creative workshops centred around encouraging young people to express themselves creatively, grow in confidence and learn new things about their local area. Participants are led by a range of creative practitioners who help them to create and bring to life original ideas through many different art forms including acting, art and animation, filmmaking, writing, comedy, design and movement workshops.

Each season of Far Far Away typically runs over three months and is loosely guided by a theme the young people are interested in. The theme is usually explored through a particular discipline, such as theatre or film. At the end of the season of workshops SPID Theatre hosts an informal showcase of the young people’s work for family and friends. Project partners in the past have included the Natural History Museum, Hilarity Academy and the Science Museum.

Far Far Away: Spring Season 2022

The Far Far Away 2022 spring season kicks off in mid-March and will run every Tuesday, from 4.45-6.15pm, until the end of June. This season we’ll be partnering with North Kensington Library exploring the theme “Portrait of a Community” through clowning and comedy. Led by specialist practitioners the young people will create work using clowning techniques which bring the stories of their family and friends to life. These stories will then be shown to local people in a performance at North Kensington Library at the end of June.

Far Far Away is free to attend and open to any young person between the ages of 8-13. If you are the parent or guardian of a young person who you think would like to take part, then just send an email to youth@oldwebsite.spidtheatrecompany.com registering your interest. Be advised that SPID Theatre have limits on the number of young people we can take and we operate on a first come, first served basis.
