The Bristol Theatre Parent Network
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.
