Signs was founded by Jess Ryall in 2013, after gaining funding support from Sir Paul McCartney & Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
Based in North Dorset, Signs Drama is a company providing workshops, classes and projects for various ages and members of the community. Jess uses drama and sensory techniques to engage young people and adults in the arts. It is also a great way to captivate children's interest in popular classroom topics, current social issues or simply to have fun! Drama is a fantastic way to increase social skills, confidence and self esteem as well as create a great sense of achievement.
Jess established Signs with a view to set up opportunities for those with and without special needs and disabilities, involving young people in the arts. The use of drama and sensory techniques in the work Signs does means that young people and adults alike can access the content regardless of their abilities.
Jess works to ensure young people gain in confidence, enjoy the ability to learn new skills and develop as a person, performer and professional, as well as have a fun and stimulating time.

Do you have an old favourite bike that needs bringing back to life? Below are 3 examples of one of our many restoration projects. To get your old but loved bike back to a brand new look contact Ollie Rose at re-CYCLE-d on 01963 365737 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
"From a very young age rebuilding and repairing bicycles has been a hobby of mine, over the years i have seen many mass produced bikes that are really poorly built. This gave me the inspiration that i needed to set up a business offering top quality hand built bicycles at affordable prices, also offering a service where customers can get their favourite bike restored to its former glory (rather than another bike going to landfill), please check our facebook homepage for examples of some of restoration projects. Even if you only require a safety check for your bicycle or just some friendly advice please contact us either through facebook or call 01963365737, email email@example.com. Many thanks".

Snow White knows what it is like to live in such an unhappy land, and our tale begins when she must flee for her life to escape the Queen's terrible jealousy. Seeking refuge in the mysterious Wild Wood, Snow White discovers she is not the only one who refuses to live in a world without laughter. Under the trees, little steps are being taken to bring about big changes. Angel Heart have been engaging and enriching hearts of all ages with their performances since 2007. They celebrate their tenth anniversary by breathing new life into this timeless fairy tale, with a visually striking Steam Punk style. Suitable 4+
