Situation

Newham has a diverse, young and rapidly growing population which is among the top areas for child poverty in the country, despite being so close to so much wealth with half of all children trapped in poverty. We want families having access to and freely engaging in creative activities regardless of their ethnicity, socio-economic background or ability. They deserve to see a theatre show and take part in enjoyable experiences that other families have the opportunity to participate in.

Solution

Full Hearts Full Tummies is an opportunity for disadvantaged families to come together and forget their worries, socialise and share in a joyous experience. The scheme helps families to come to their local theatre and see a show for the first time, in welcoming surroundings, and enjoy a post-show meal together. This supports families to overcome the barrier to arts engagement and supports children to participate in activities that encourage their imagination, whilst creating happy memories.
