From Jan – June 2023 we ran 11 sessions at the Crew Club for young people ages 11 – 16. We worked with over 30 young people during these sessions who learnt a whole range of comedy skills from stand-up to slapstick as well as building confidence, boosting writing & public speaking skills, meeting new people and having a lot of laughs.
At the start of the summer holidays we delivered two longer afternoon sessions for young people living in the Hangleton & Knoll area and partnering with Hangleton & Knoll Youth Project. Young people learnt new skills, met new people, developed performance skills, built confidence, had a lot of fun and at the end of the second day got to be part of a performance in front of invited friends and family. We worked with 12 young people across the two sessions ages 11-16. In October half term 2023 we delivered a 3 hour session for young people in partnership with HKYP.
Similarly as with Hangleton & Knoll we delivered two afternoon sessions at Brighton Youth Centre over the summer holidays giving young people involved an opportunity to perform on the second day in front of invited friends and family. We worked with 18 brilliant young people across the two sessions.
