This month, Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans (BATH) celebrates its 20th birthday!
In September, BATH members Robyn S and Chloe S will be travelling to Tanzania and Ghana to work for three months as volunteers.
Supported by Durham Constabulary, BATH was recently commissioned by the National Illegal Money Lending Team to create a number of theatrical pieces to raise awareness about loan sharks.
Last term, six members of BATH, accompanied by Director of Learning for Performing Arts, Miss Howard, travelled to Brazil for the trip of a lifetime. They were joined at the airport by Stephen Elliott, Drama Teacher at King James who is on a year-long sabbatical and Ana Carolina, Brazilian native and part of the BATH family. Here, Miss Howard gives her personal account.
During Half Term, 43 students travelled to Durrus, County Cork in Ireland for the much loved annual BATH trip.
Earlier in the year, members of BATH (Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans) received a warm welcome from our friends in Montego Bay, when they travelled to Jamaica to build much-needed bathroom facilities for Brightley Beam Primary School. Now, it is our turn to play host.
BATH’s Jamaica Difference Project is difficult to put into words. Extraordinary, inspirational, remarkable, worthwhile, emotional; all true, but not enough.
During the Easter holidays, following an exhausting 36 hour journey, 21 members of BATH in Years 9-13 arrived in Montego Bay for the annual Jamaica Difference visit. This trip saw the culmination of the inspiring BATHroom Project, which involved building and decorating toilet and washroom facilities for pupils at Brightley Beam Pre-School. Previously, the school had none at all.
Thanks to Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans (BATH), over 1500 people from our local community were entertained by our talented young people at Christmas.
Paul Charlton, star of the BBC’s newest comedy show, ‘The Ginge, the Geordie and the Geek’, will be visiting King James on Friday 25th October as part of our ‘Success Week’.
