“Artburst provided us, for our first Summer Uni London programme, a wonderful workshop entitled  ‘James and the Giant Peach’. The work and expertise during the week culminated in a performance that would have been worthy of many months of work.  The costume design and the narrative of the play having been devised during the week showed just how much work was put in and I know from the feedback received that the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Parents also commented on the fun the youngsters were having. The aim of the Summer Uni is to give young people the chance to try something new, Artburst provided that for these youngsters and I am pleased to say that we have booked them again for the next half term school holiday.  A really enjoyable experience for everyone involved.”
