And the winner is… Theatr na nÓg!

This May, Theatr na nÓg took a trip to Cardiff for the Arts & Business Cymru Awards in Wales Millennium Centre, where we were up for an exciting nomination.

Our project Would You Jump? had placed us and our collaborators Cardiff Harbour Authority and Port of Milford Haven in the category of Arts, Business and the Environment.

We’re delighted to announce that we scooped the award, with all judges in agreement. A great start to our 2018 reincarnation of the project that sees us working with even more schools and young people across South Wales next week.

Arts & Business Cymru stated:

‘The judges praised Cardiff Harbour Authority and Port of Milford Haven for their vision in commissioning a drama to address a common challenge. The businesses sponsored Theatr na nÓg to devise and perform a play that raised awareness of the dangers of swimming and tombstoning in busy maritime areas in Cardiff Bay and Milford Haven. The theatre company worked with pupils from years 6-8 in both places, as well as giving public performances on the waterfronts. Would you Jump? was seen by over 1,000 people and both businesses reported a decrease in anti-social behaviour during Summer 2017. The project was so successful in promoting a key water safety message that the sponsors have increased their investment in 2018. This will enable a second stage, involving writing workshops for pupils in both Cardiff and Milford Haven, who will develop a sequel to the original play. The judges agreed that this impressive collaboration was the clear winner of this category.’
