"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]

"Head2Head Theatre recently performed a multi-sensory & interactive performance for a local SEN school in Mole Valley. I went along to one of the performances & was struck by how well Anni & her team captivated the students imagination & attention. The performance was designed with accessibility at its heart enabling the pupils with challenging needs to participate alongside the more able young people. The performance style was positive & incorporated drama, music & dance all of which was appreciated by the audience. I found that the professional actors were able to be flexible & adapt to the audience, improvising where necessary so not to draw attention to any pupils struggling within the performance. Based on this performance & the relationship we have built with Anni, Mole Valley District Council have contributed funding towards future performances. Head2Head Theatre clearly put a lot of care & thought into their productions with a great consideration for student needs & I would recommend them to other schools & settings."     [Lesley Spiers, Arts & Communities Officer, Mole Valley District Council, Feb. 2014]

"Thank you so much for the fantastic Easter performances of Blackbeard's Revenge. They were very well organised and provided a fantastic sensory opportunity in a really accessible way.   We would definitely be keen to come along to any further performances as they match the needs of the children we work with well.  We rely on the generosity of members of the public and organisations, such as yourself, to ensure that the children in our care enjoy a rich and varied schedule of activities and trips and we are all so grateful for your support.  It means so much to the children and you have helped us to create lasting memories for them."           [Hazel Thompson, Leisure & Activities Co-ordinator, The Children's Trust, April 2014]

"My son loved Blackbeard's Revenge and so did I. I loved the way that so much thought had gone into the sensory aspect of it, from the texture of the shells to the water spray and the smell of the hot chocolate. He also loved the songs, the puppet dog, trying on the animal masks in the jungle and the feel of the baby snakes. I thought that the whole thing was fab. The length of the show was just right and moving from scene to scene kept the whole thing fresh and interesting. I really like the fact that the children can be as involved as they want. My son is quite timid and likes to take things at his own pace. Your shows give him the opportunity to be able to participate within his comfort zone. He hates to feel under pressure or to feel that he will be asked to perform and at these shows there is never any pressure to do so. In fact this is the only way that he can actually experience drama and acting. He cannot cope with being in a traditional theatre set-up, so thank you for bringing the theatre to him at level he can understand and appreciate."     [Michelle Perrett, parent, May 2014]
