“It was good that we made up our own song – Better than just singing something boring that someone else made up!”
"The best thing is that we have a proper theatre, with lights and costumes and musicians and everything, so when we do a show it feels like a real show, not just kids.”
"Hackney Shed enriches my child's life on so many levels. She is not only learning theatre skills, but so much more. She is learning about community and co-operation, and is gaining in confidence and self-worth."
"As a parent with a child with special needs I value the inclusivity over and above everything. This is from the point of view both of how good it is for him to feel included and valued but also from the point of view of my other two children who are able to see him and others with special needs being on an equal footing."
"We have been Hackney residents for nearly 20 years and have been very proud to find such an excellent opportunity for all children right on our doorstep."
"It is the highlight of my son’s week. It has increased his confidence and he feels really bonded with the Hackney Shed staff and other students."
"Hackney Shed offers outstanding value for money, excelling inclusivity and highly professional , motivated and supportive staff. It is the only show in town!"
"Hackney Shed was chosen because of its great reputation in the area and after attending a few sessions my daughter and I were totally enamoured by the dedication, commitment and high standards of the teaching by the staff, they truly are an amazing bunch."
"My daughter has gained a lot of confidence, not only in her drama skills but in her general demeanour as a result of attending Hackney Shed."
