The Roadshow allows schools and other groups to make a strong statement of non-tolerance towards bullying, whilst giving their students and young people the chance to explore the issues and the importance of their own role in dealing with it. The Roadshow's dual goal is awareness-raising and empowerment.

About the Anti Bullying Week Roadshows:

Every year Actionwork produces the national and international Anti-Bullying Roadshow. This tours to schools, youth clubs, colleges, universities and parent groups all over the UK and abroad.

Previous roadshows have included: Power For Good, Cyber Tears, Let's Stop Bullying For All, Make a Noise About Bullying, The Science of Bullying, Chronicle of a Bully, Cyber Scream, Clash, and Silent Scream. Our anti-bullying roadshows have been called the ultimate theatre-in-education experience.

The Roadshows last for 60-minutes and can be performed to a whole year group at a time.

The Roadshow can be complemented by additional creative interactive workshops - please ask for details.
