Lyric Theatre

Tue, 16/09/2014 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
HEdNI have been approached by an independent film maker to see if a film could be made of home educating families. This is not an investigative documentary, but the recording of real life situations, hopefully without judgement. The end point may be the BBC but the producers cannot guarantee the film will be aired at this stage.

An exploratory meeting with parents is proposed at which both sides can get to know about each other, and afterwards we decide about taking part. Families will be asked if they wish to volunteer for filming, but  the meeting is open to families who only wish to put forward their experience of home education and not appear on film.

A second room has been booked so that children can be brought along and parents will be asked to take turns at minding them and we will have activities to entertain. The theatre has also been requested to give the children a short tour of backstage, costume, etc.
