Getting There, a highly entertaining play delivered with enthusiasm and energy, focuses on encouraging young people to take responsibility for their personal safety on their way to school, whether on foot, bicycle or public transport, by allowing them to empathise with recognisable characters and to become fully engaged in the action.

I thought it was a brilliant way to educate children about the dangers of the road.  I will definitely be more careful now.

The music, energy and enthusiasm, combined with an important message really helps individual children to grasp the concept. Each child is unique and will have taken something important from this performance that will change their behaviours!

Teaching Assistant, Forest Gate Academy

The children took in everything so much more because they were enjoying themselves.  It was a fantastic performance! The children were engaged throughout and it sent important reminders to them e.g. about cycle helmets etc.

It was really good and it helped me be aware of my surroundings when I cross the road.
