We can’t remember a time where everyone at Collingwood Learning was all in the office, together, for a full week. The nature of our theatre work means we’re always on the road – and we clocked up the air miles recently, with a trip to Budapest.
Chris Simes, our founder and MD, travelled to Hungary to watch the Momentan Theatre Company performing The Smashed Project to a group of 14-year olds. Having adapted the storyline to fit with local customs and language, the youngsters were incredibly engaged in the show – from start to finish.
Huge kudos to Szabina Pelz, Diageo’s Communications and Engagement Lead and her team – who have done an excellent job in bringing Smashed to life in Budapest. We did such a good job that Chris even had time to pay a visit to St Stephen’s Cathedral!
Back here in Blighty, the birthplace of The Smashed Project, our teams are on the road throughout England, Scotland and Wales, delivering the roadshow to schools on our home soil. Here’s a few recent photos from a performance in Cumbria.
Not only that, but our ‘Essex Safer Roads Partnership: Dead End’ production is now in full swing across the country. Delivered to groups of year 11 students, this hard-hitting live theatre and workshop programme is based upon three intertwining stories of road collisions and aims to educate soon-to-be-drivers about the dangers on our highways.
