Participant feedback from the 2019 project in Tameside:
“When people said the theatre, I thought that wasn’t for me. That it was full of stuck up people but it’s not. Its dead warm and welcoming and nice and the atmosphere is just amazing. My confidence has gone through the roof massively. I never in a million years thought I would be doing something like this, not someone with my background. If you’d have asked me last year if I’d be working at the Royal Exchange I’d have said no not in a million years”
