Jump In! Exhibition – Bee Me

An exhibition created with local schools and inspired by Me and My Bee, a show in the Jump In! Family Arts Festival.

Albert Einstein said that without the bees, humans have four years left to live. We rely on bees to pollinate one third of the crops we use as food.

This special multi-sensory experience for diverse family audiences including children with SEN, explores the importance and plight of bees, and gives ideas for what we can do to help the bee population.

Your chance to be on stage and in the spotlight!

Our friendly theatre company lead the sessions, where you’ll have fun and meet new friends. Each term you'll create a show and perform in our studio or on the main stage, with lighting, sound and staging from Norden Farm's technical crew.

Terms 10 weeks long, no auditions, suitable for all abilities and end with a sharing or a performance.


'I started with Troublemaker at 10yrs old, although acting wasn't for me but offered many opportunities. From that followed a scholarship to drama school and many jobs, of which Troublemaker are still always a key part of interview chat. I continue to wear their t shirts with much respect and love. Please ask me back soon' Hilary Williamson, Head of Stage at Young Vic Theatre
