Bamboozle – brief overview 

Established in 1994, Bamboozle is part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio and has a national and international reputation. At Bamboozle we enable learning disabled children to find their own voice. We do this by producing immersive accessible theatre shows which tour the UK and internationally – China, Australia, Egypt and this year Sweden and Netherlands. We also work in schools and with families who have a disabled child delivering residencies in theatres and outdoor venues.   

All Bamboozle’s work is underpinned by our unique methodology – The Bamboozle Approach which is explained here.
