This was a brilliant experience for our students who gained a great deal of knowledge and skills. The company’s work is incredibly powerful - the students and I felt privileged to have attended.
New City College, Epping Forest

The opportunity to work with a theatre company creating work was really great for the group. It was very interesting to hear about the work that BFT does and explore how theatre/art can be used for activism.
