"Wireless Theatre Company came to deliver a workshop on radio drama to 7 visually impaired students who were studying for a unit in Audio Drama for BTEC Performing Arts. It was a fantastic session where students got to work with scripts, microphones and experiment with creating their own sound through the use of Foley. A two hour session flew by and we were all thoroughly inspired by the time spent in the company of Jack and Annie who were brilliant leaders and teachers leaving me with some highly perceptive feedback on the students which I can use towards their BTEC qualification. I would not hesitate to have them back again. In fact, I can’t wait to!” Lucy Rix, New College Worcester
