Since 1994, to parallel all their shows Feelgood has designed a range of accessible workshops and educational experiences for participants of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. We believe that by giving people an opportunity to work alongside theatre professionals, they can acquire skills, have fun and take part in activities that can enhance both their lives and enrich local communities.


Not About Heroes


The play weaves together poetry, letters and autobiographical writings including: Anthem for Doomed Youth, Mental Cases, Strange Meeting, Exposure and The Dead Beat and many more included on the secondary syllabus.   It is suitable for all audiences (11 +) and inspirational for those studying Drama, WWI poetry, Literature, History and Performing Arts.  A free downloadable Education Pack is available on our website and if you are interested in a bespoke workshop for your school or group get in touch.



“…my whole year group of GCSE students woke up to poetry, history and WWI in an incredible way after seeing your play.
Thank you for giving them the motivation to re look at their exam work but most importantly for truly inspiring them.”  

(Head of English, Altrincham Grammar).







Not About Heroes is being performed in Ors, Northern France on 31st Oct at the Wilfred Owen Memorial La Maison Forestiere  the Foresters House.  If your school or group is planning a trip to the Battlefields this would make a unique addition.


Feelgood’s work aims to:


Promote all aspects of theatre and music theatre as an educational medium in schools, colleges and community groups.

Develop projects in line with the National Curriculum.

Devise exciting multidisciplinary projects that encourage cross art form collaboration.

Design tailor-made, hands-on workshops for you.
