Into Film Festival 

Following the national INTO FILM festival we have once again been selected to hosting a free screening of:

The Greatest Showman Cert PG Weds 6th February 2019

Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

FULLY BOOKED – Please email if you are interested and we’ll contact Into Film to see if we can hold additional screenings.

InspirED Digidays

We offer face-to-face support through pre-bookable 60 or 90 minute sessions.  These will typically run at our Bridgwater Engine Room base.  However by arrangement we can also come to you – indeed we would like to do so as it gives us a chance to better tailor what we offer to the benefit of your students.

Use these sessions to get the support you need to develop a digital project or to exploit digital technology to augment other creative work in any aspect of the curriculum.  They are intended as CPD but on occasion we may be able to meet with a small group of your students in the process.  As you will be aware the best return on your investment in InspirED is to embed skills with your staff. Time is limited so it is best to use these sessions to get something moving or to trouble shoot. We usually suggest a maximum of 6 to 8 teachers per session.
