Making inclusive arts accessible to all
Embracing Arts is a theatre company that is dedicated to creating work for children with special educational needs and/or life limiting conditions. We believe that every child should be able to enjoy the magic of theatre and have created a range of theatrical experiences that can be brought to them, wherever they are.
Our interactive, multi-sensory shows, parties and workshops are tailored to the unique needs of each audience and use storytelling, song, music and puppetry to entertain, engage and educate. They are delivered by our team of experienced professional actors, supported by our fantastic puppets!
Christmas For Kids
Specially designed interactive shows - bursting with music, puppetry and sensory stimuli. Inclusive for all, performed in children's hospices and SEND schools across the UK, entirely for free!
Embracing Arts Parties
Bespoke parties, specially crafted for children with special needs, complex needs, Profound Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) and Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). Full of sensory play, puppetry, music and interaction. Suitable for all ages and abilities.

A word from our Patron: Sarah Moyle
I am delighted to be the patron for Embracing Arts. I am in awe of the thrilling and fantastic work this charity does in hospices, SEND schools and for families all over the country. As an actor, I am conscious of how vital the creative arts are to everyone. Having taught children for over ten years, I have seen first-hand how beneficial this kind of interaction can be for any child, but especially for those dealing with profound multiple learning difficulties or life-limiting illness.
I also believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience live performance, and through the work of Embracing Arts's project Christmas for Kids, they can - at no cost to families or to hospice venues.
