BAFTA Kids Roadshow with Place2Be visits Cardiff 


The BAFTA Kids Roadshow with Place2Be launched its 3rd year this week with visits to 2 schools in Cardiff, marking 10 years since Place2Be began working in Wales.

Moorland Primary and Peter Lea Primary both welcomed children's TV presenters Katie Thistleton - Place2Be Ambassador - and Sam Homewood, who worked with school pupils to boost their confidence and creativity via a TV presenting masterclass.

Moorland were also joined by Joe Talbot, director and producer of the CBBC football drama 'Jamie Johnson', while Peter Lea chatted with multi BAFTA-award winning writer and director Adam Tyler. 

The Roadshow, which was recently named the London Book Fair's Charity of the Year, has been travelling all around the UK in the past 2 years, visiting schools in Bath, Birmingham, Bradford, Cardiff, Croydon, Easington, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Harlow, Leeds, Manchester, Margate, North Ayrshire, Preston and Salford.

Over the next few months, we are excited to bring the Roadshow to 12 more schools.

Katie Thistleton said:

“I love hosting the BAFTA Roadshow events for the children in Place2Be schools. It’s always amazing to see the positive effect the BAFTA and Place2Be partnership is having, and we have such a fun day full of confidence building exercises and activities where we celebrate what is brilliant and unique about us all. I always leave with a full heart, even more certain that Place2Be should be in every school.”

Catherine Roche, Place2Be Chief Executive, said:

“We’re delighted to be launching the 2019 BAFTA Roadshow in Cardiff. The events enable children in Place2Be schools to benefit from this powerful communication skills and confidence building experience. We are proud to have provided mental health support in schools in Cardiff for over 10 years and now we wish to use this experience and hope to expand the service further to benefit many more children and school communities across Wales.”

Emma Gough, Headteacher at Peter Lea Primary, said:

“The BAFTA Roadshow and masterclass is a brilliant opportunity for the pupils at Peter Lea to be inspired by positive role models and develop their own aspirations of what can be achieved through determination and focus.  It will develop their self-confidence and resilience, which will impact positively on their well-being.”
