“Changing expectations and helping people to achieve their potential.”


Our initiatives during lock down are:

  • Ongoing online drama activities to match the demand for our services, via the Life In The Cloud and #howdoyoudoleeds initiatives.

  • YouTube series, "Bite Size Drama". These short films enable people to access our drama activities at a time and place that suits them.

  • Lockdown Breakout is a fantasy adventure story game, where the group use their imaginations to go on quests, defeat monsters and collect treasure.

About Us

Since 2012, Bright Sparks Theatre Arts have been delivering inclusive person-centred drama projects in the Leeds area, working with people with learning disabilities, complex needs and autism. We create new original theatre, including two large-scale shows per year. We also design, organise and deliver applied drama projects for schools and communication workshops for university medical education.

We see so many positive outcomes from the work we do. From growing confidence, tapping into unrealised talents and helping individuals achieve their potential; to connecting communities and creating new learning experiences for our participants. Currently, we work online through our Life In The Cloud initiative.

"At Bright Sparks we assume everyone has a story to tell and everyone should have the resources and space to tell that story."
