Education Bookings Team News

As Winter has fast approached us we've been reflecting back on the last few months of progress.
In October alone, our bookings peaked for the entire year with the onset of Black History Month. We had the privilege of working alongside a number of London Boroughs including Lambeth and Haringey; and a huge number of schools, prisons and community organisations which all in all added up to 74 workshops and 96 performances! As a fairly new bookings team, it certainly kept us on our toes!
We look forward to more successful bookings for 2010!
