BAFTA Roadshow with Place2Be arrives in Salford
This week, BAFTA teamed up with Place2Be to bring the BAFTA Roadshow to two primary schools in Salford.
TV presenters Ben Shires (Dig Detectives, Officially Amazing) and Alishea Campbell-Drummond (The Next Step) hosted special assemblies and a presenting masterclass at Lewis Street and Christ Church CE Primary Schools.
The Roadshow exists to teach important life skills through film, games, and television. The activities on offer provide access to talent to raise awareness and provide positive, inspiring role models within the industry, while aiming to champion pupils’ creativity and boost confidence.
During the visits, children were able to sit in a special Assembly that looked behind the scenes of film, games and TV. The children were also able to take part in a BAFTA Young Games Designer workshop with BAFTA Award winning studio, Tt Games, as well as a presenting masterclass, which aimed to boost students’ confidence and creativity.
BAFTA has been partnering with Place2Be since 2016 as part of its core charitable work to nurture and inspire the next generation of creative talent. In 2021, our partnership won the Action for Children’s Arts (ACA) Outstanding Contribution to Children’s Arts Award.
In 2023, the Roadshow will continue to visit Place2Be partner schools across England, Scotland and Wales.
