Welcome to Bigfoot Arts Education TV; a new digital platform using the magic of film to bring some of Bigfoot’s most popular Performance & Assembly programmes into ALL classrooms, school halls and homes!
We first filmed our Year 6 Transition Film Upwards & Onwards to great success, and have since been busily building our reportoire in order to provide students with high quality film stimulus from which to further explore important topics and issues.
Films can be fully downloaded to screen or uploaded to the school servers, home learning platforms, and/or website from here: bigfootartseducationtv.vhx.tv/products
BIGFOOT PANTOMIME; SLEEPING BEAUTY
For 15 years Bigfoot have been successfully touring sell out Pantomime shows to schools, and we are not going to let a tricky virus stop children from enjoying their Christmas treat entitlement!! So it’s a resounding “OH YES WE ARE” for 2020!
So this year we have partnered with The Royal Hippodrome Theatre and top tech film company Smokescreen Visuals to virtually bring you your own performance of Sleeping Beauty, direct from the stage and straight into your classrooms! We will work with you to create unique elements, specific to your school, in order to make this pantomime a truly personalised experience and as close to the real thing as possible. Once it has been recorded, your performance will be available to download and keep – meaning that classes can join in the fun at a time that suits them, as well as being available for any children who may be at home.
*All bookings must be made before 16th November. Book now to take advantage of an Early Bird Discount Offer and secure your pantomime performance of Sleeping Beauty:

BLACK HISTORY; All Aboard The Empire Windrush
Meet Clinton and his Mum as they say goodbye to their homeland and prepare for a new life in post-war Britain.
What will they miss? Why are they starting a new life in the ‘Motherland’? And what was life like on board the Empire Windrush in 1948? Celebrating over 70 years since the ship first docked at Tilbury in Essex, the story of the Empire Windrush marks the foundations of multi-cultural Britain, which raises a number of important issues for modern society.

ANTI BULLYING; Choose Respect
Schools can now opt to buy in a professional ﬁlmed version of our popular anti-bullying assembly performance ‘Choose Respect’
‘Choose Respect’ takes an in depth look at how we manage relationships, respond to conﬂict and celebrate our diﬀerences. By utilising a variety of characters we skilfully present real stories that explore how we can respect each other, and ourselves, through our behaviour, language and actions. What is empathy and how do we show it? How can we stand up for ourselves, and each other, safely? And how can we respect each other – at home, school and online?
