As part of Find Your Talent, Unity Theatre developed an exciting outreach programme for young people during half-term holidays. The aim of the project was to encourage engagement in the arts from harder-to-reach children by running activities on their doorstep.

The To Do Market was designed to provide children and young people with the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of creative and expressive arts activities. Activities were tailored for children aged 5 and above, and families were also encourage at attend.

The To Do Market set out creative activities on market-style stalls. The activities included arts and crafts, cake decorating and storytelling. In addition to this throughout the day local groups were given the opportunity to showcase their talents.

In St Helens those performing included Jem Extreme Cheerleaders, the breakdance group UC Crew and the Citadel Theatre’s drama group. UC Crew also ran DJ’ing workshops.

Unity has a well established year-round programme of exciting and unique workshops and performances suitable for children, young people and their families.
