The West London Inclusive Arts Festival

A partnership between four Special Needs Schools and two London cultural institutions; The Wallace Collection and The Lyric Theatre Hammersmith.

A festival that promotes and shares best practice, enhances students experiences and shares and celebrates with our cultural partners.

We have two major events in the programme and one CPD event

Events within the Festival

An immersive story told in a multi-sensory manner and through improvised interactions with actors.  This approach supports all our young people in accessing the story in an appropriate and meaningful manner. The sensory story will be performed at QEII Jubilee School from Tuesday the 1st May.   This is also supported by a dramatic performance of   A Hero’s Quest. This supports our young people who can act and we celebrate this in two performances on the 17th and 18th May at The lyric Theatre in Hammersmith, from 12.30 for approximately one hour. If you are interested in attending any of these events please email: p.morrow@qe2cp.westminster.sch.uk
