Education & Community

“I deeply believe in the power of drama and the performing arts to improve the lives of individuals and community groups, to raise awareness and prompt honest discussion of social issues, as a creative training tool and of course as a source of enjoyment and entertainment. I love performing, but my passion lies in making the world a better and safer place for our children” Mel Ash

Because of this passion Mel regularly facilitates drama workshops and drama based training within educational, community and corporate settings. She has a wealth of experience in working with vulnerable adults and children, minority groups and in educational settings.

Previous clients include: Caritas Care, Lancashire Drug and Alcohol Team, MacIntrye Assisted Living, Preston Community Network, Mind, NSG, Blackburn and Central High School  with Crosshill , Rivington Primary School, Lostock Hall High School. Integrate Adult Learning Centre

Mel can tailor a programme to match your exact requirements for either a one off  drama workshop or a longer term project focusing on a specific brief or event. Please see our gallery for examples of work
