The Roadshow exists to champion children’s creativity and teach important life skills through film, games and television. Children taking part also earn soft skills that are important for emotional wellbeing and career progression.
The Roadshow has been travelling around the UK for two years, visiting schools in Bath, Birmingham, Bradford, Cardiff, Croydon, Easington, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Harlow, Leeds, Manchester, Margate, North Ayrshire, Preston and Salford.
