Echo Awards shortlist announced!

We are delighted to announce that our Drama Dept and All Things Considered Theatre are finalists in the Liverpool Echo Awards for the Arts and Performance category.

It's for the immersive performance "Tomorrow Night:CSE" a highly charged project about Child Sexual Exploitation.Gateacre Drama initially assisted All Things Considered with the pilot idea and this meant that ATC could successfully apply for funding. Gateacre School were honoured to host the legacy event at the end of the project, which offered a chance to share best practice within school communities across Liverpool.

During the legacy event, Gateacre Drama students from Year 9 and 10 performed a verbatim piece of theatre, based on the words of the young people who had witnessed “Tomorrow Night: CSE.” This performance moved many of the audience of professionals to tears. They were also involved in a Q+A session which they had not been prepared for, however acted and answered with such maturity, some audience members were left speechless.
