"Head2Head Theatre is a trusted provider of fun and unique Short Breaks activities across Hampshire. I am consistently impressed with their ability to craft an experience that involves a variety of children and young people with widely differing and complex needs. The sensory theatre experience is clearly enjoyed not only by the children attending, but their siblings and families too."
  [Neil Zammit, Short Breaks Co-ordinator, Hampshire County Council, April 2016]

"Totally interactive. Dressing up/waving a flag/becoming a character. The children (and adults) become part of the show but what’s brilliant is there is no pressure. They haven’t got to “perform” and can get involved as little or as much as they want. Also the child does not have to be at a certain ability level to be able to participate. It is literally accessible for all." [parent]

"A very enjoyable inclusive, interactive, imaginative and enjoyable event full of surprises and special touches.  The actors were warm, involving, approachable and very professional." [parent]
