Bigfoot are proud to be celebrating their seventh year of successfully delivering a diverse and exciting range of creative programmes for Black History Month. With the option to book assembly performances, interactive workshops and intimate storytelling experiences, a wide range of schools are joining Bigfoot throughout October to celebrate this event as imaginatively as possible!
For the first time in over three years, Bigfoot’s very own Black History Month writer and director, Samantha Adams, is back! And, to celebrate, students have been invited to witness firsthand the skills of a professional storyteller in action. Travelling throughout primary schools and visiting students class by class, Sam will be inspiring and exciting listeners of all ages by weaving tales from her collection of stories with pace, tension and, above all, passion!
Alternatively Adrian, Bigfoot’s senior resident facilitator, is ready to burst into schools with energy and enthusiasm to deliver either ‘Come an See Anansi’ or ‘A Carnival Heroes’. Both programmes have received outstanding feedback from schools previously, and we are excited to be repeating these successes again this year. Whether weaving colourful tales from the shores of the Caribbean and Africa with Anansi, a cheeky yet cunning half man- half spider, or joining ‘Spirit’ as he captivates the attention of all listeners by stepping in and out of pivotal periods of Black history, students are looking forward to a colorful and diverse black history month extravaganza!
BHM 2010 Testimonial
I just wanted to say a big thank you from everyone here at Fairway School for a fantastic day on Friday. Without exception the children and staff were totally captivated by the performance and it was lovely to hear so much laughter throughout the day (from the staff too which is pretty rare at this point through a term!) and the children have not stopped talking about Anansi ever since so they obviously learnt a great deal too. Adrian was quite literally an explosion of positive energy which was exactly what our school needed!
