Valleys Kids were able to bring a special bit of Christmas cheer to hundreds of children who were given a Duffy Disney Bear thanks to the partnership between the Disney Store in Cardiff and Valleys Kids.

ArtWorks are pleased to welcome back Big Brum Theatre company with their fantastic Theatre in Education tour of ‘Touched’ by Chris Cooper.
“Don’t want to come out? Don’t blame yer. Believe me darlin’ I’ve seen everythin there is to see an’ it’s not all it’s cracked up to be…no place for a kid. Makes yer old before yer time. Ouch! Steady on with yer size nines”
A city in the throes of a riot.
A child is born into chaos and uncertainty. Who can give her a home? What will become of her? It will be years before the answer will be known; a child touched by madness, touched by greed and cruelty, touched by freedom and hope.
‘Touched’ explores a darkly comic exploration of the lives of young people on the margins of a society at war with itself, and their desire to find community.
The performance is on:
Friday 7th February 7pm at soar Centre, Penygraig roundabout, CF40 1JZ.
This performance is recommended for an audience aged 13+.
Ticket prices are £5 and £2 concessions.
If you would like more information or to book tickets, please call the ArtWorks team on 01443 303032.
