VICTA is teaming up with Extant, Britain’s leading professional performing arts company of visually impaired people, to provide a workshop day for 18 to 29 year olds on Saturday 9 February, 10.30am to 12.00pm. The theatre workshop is based on Extant’s professional work ‘Flight Paths’. Find out more about ‘Flight Paths’ here > 

Our group will attend a workshop based around the production before watching the show in the afternoon. The professional performance is at 2pm and prior to this is a touch tour. There will be time to have lunch and socialise in the cafe after the workshop and before the touch tour.

Please note, no VICTA staff or volunteers will be present on the day.
