Since being founded in April 2012 Wind-Up Penguin Theatre Company have taken the arts not only to children in developing countries where access to the arts may be limited but have also run workshops here in the UK for children who have limited access to the arts.
Sport benefits children physically, school meal benefit their health and wellbeing, the national curriculum helps children to flourish academically but the arts can help the understand the world around them. The arts can be a place to express yourself, and escape from daily life.
We bring them that opportunity.
We are thrilled to announce that we have been officially granted Registered Charity status.
As of April 14th 2015 we are Registered Charity Number: 1161255
A huge thank you goes out to all those involved in making this happen. Team Brazil and Team Peru were jumping with joy at the news. (And we didn’t know penguins could jump)
