School holidays are meant to be fun!

'It's the only holiday programme I was able to get her up for.  She took herself to bed early because she needed to be ready for the next day.  In the morning she was awake and dressed by the time I got to her room to wake her up!'

Short Breaks

Tramshed are an activity provider for Short Breaks on the behalf of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and we run activities in the school holidays. For more information on how to register your young person for Short Breaks, please visit the Royal Borough of Greenwich website.

The term “short breaks” refers to services that help parents/carers to more effectively provide care for their disabled children by providing them regular breaks so that they can meet the needs of other children in the family; study or take part in leisure activities themselves; or carry out day to day household tasks.

For our Short Break on Saturday 22nd February, we are partnering with the Baked Bean Theatre Company to deliver an exciting day of drama!

Now in its 23rd Year the Baked Bean Theatre Company is an Arts Based organisation in London that works with children and adults with learning disabilities.  Working with people of all abilities they devise, create and perform their own productions telling the world that people with disabilities have a lot say. Whether it's singing in the Baked Bean Choir, performing in one of their dance companies, or creating memorable characters in one of their theatre companies, one thing remains the same; audiences are blown away by what they see.

You will get a taste of what it’s like to be a 'Beanie' ending with a showcase of what we have created that very day!  Whether you are a regular Shakespeare, or have never acted before this is the workshop for you!
