Malvern Christmas Lights Switch-On
Perfect Circle Youth Theatre created some dynamic, interactive street theatre to entertain the crowds at the 2009 Christmas lights switch-on.
Big thanks to Heather Striplin, Bryony Cowell, Holly Norridge, Naomi Rule, Will Hughes & Amos Rock-Davidson for their fantastic work.
We had a busk-off X-Factor style with competing groups of Festive carollers, a “Christmas Wrapping” service (or was it “Christmas Rapping??”) and some lovely, calm storytelling at Malvern Library.
Thanks too to everyone who came out to support us – Merry Christmas!

In association with Safer Worcester, Worcester Housing and West Mercia Constabulary, Perfect Circle created a piece of Forum Theatre to tour schools in Worcester.
The devised Forum Theatre project tackled the subjects of alcohol awareness, criminal damage & ASBOs in a light-hearted, interactive style which was extremely well received by teachers & students from Years 8 & 9. Many thanks to Matt Peplow who made his Perfect Circle debut in this project.
Street Theatre - Christmas 2008
In association with Creative Malvern & Malvern Hills District Council, we devised a piece of work celebrating the switch-on of Malvern’s Christmas lights, as part of an event in the town centre.
In between the bands, farmer’s market, lantern parade & Santa’s grotto, Perfect Circle Youth Theatre presented some well-known characters who were battling for the right to be chosen to switch on this year’s Christmas lights.
Diversity Awareness - May 2008
Working with the support of Worcestershire County Council, we ran workshops with a group of Drama students from Years 8-10 at Blessed Edward School, Worcester.
We explored the complex subject of Diversity, culminating in a performance for Councillors at Worcester Rugby Club. The students brought sensitivity, wit and personal reflections to the work which was thoroughly enjoyed & appreciated by everyone in the audience.
