It's No Joke! is a performance and workshop project which has been developed to address the issues of anti-social behaviour and weapons related crime among young people.

The performance and workshops are suitable for mainstream schools as well as for young people at risk of offending or who have been excluded from school. They are designed to fit easily into a standard timetable and can be adapted to play to a large audience or to a small group in more intimate settings.

"Please could you thank those who performed It's No Joke! Our pupils not only enjoyed the experience but really started to consider this important issue. It has led to some excellent discussions within their PHSE lessons."
Karen Hayball Deputy Head of Year 9,
La Sainte Union Catholic Secondary School.

Presented by two performers and split into three comic sketches linked by brief factual presentations plus a group discussion the show uses improvisation around a pre-scripted plot to highlight why young people might be drawn to gangs and guns and the consequences.

The theme is 'Say No To Guns & Gangs'. Students will learn the ancient educational art form of Mosaic to create art work which affects people's behaviour and attitude towards their environment - and to raise and promote awareness, participation and ownership of an urban environment.
