The Bristol Theatre Parent Network has been set up after conversations between Pins and Needles Productions, Travelling Light Theatre Company and Theatre Bristol about the challenges of juggling parenthood with careers in theatre.This page is a forum for parents to support parents through advice, collaboration and potentially even offers of childcare to support work life balance with a more local focus than wider groups on Facebook. We hope the community built online will translate into a regular network of parents who can meet together in Bristol, attend useful events and support and mentor each other.
Following the first meeting of Bristol Theatre Parents Network last Monday Travelling Light and Theatre Bristol are in the process of developing a survey to be distributed to find out more from parents in the sector about how a group such as this could help meet the needs of parents working in the sector in Bristol.I will add findings from the initial meeting to this page. The findings from the initial meeting will be added to the page.
We need your help. We want to maintain this site for the 20,000 people who use it each month, but the technology it is built on needs serious updating. If you use the site please support us with a £3 donation, or whatever you feel able to give, so we can develop it and keep it a free and valuable resource for people who make and love theatre.
You can also give to us without costing you a penny by signing up to Easy Fundraising, so when you shop online from over 2500 retailers Theatre Bristol will receive a donation.
