Mess Up The Mess Summer Programme

We’ve put together a full programme of online activities for the summer. We hope you’ll find something you’ll enjoy.

On Mondays, we’ll be running Creation Lab: Your chance to be part of the development team for our next show. Weekly Zoom workshops across the Summer holidays leading towards the creation of our next show. Creative inspiration and weekly creative challenges will supercharge your devising skills. All creative challenges will be available outside of the sessions to allow everyone who prefers to be creative offline.

On Wednesdays and Fridays, we’ve got Creative Masterclasses where leading creative artists will share their skills in fun practical workshops. Explore set design, character creation, costume design, radio production and filmmaking.

On Thursdays, kick back and relax with MUTM Socials – fun activities across the summer, including coffee and cake, non-quiz quiz, board games, a book group and the return of our Awards Night as a Masked Ball.

And in the middle of the summer, we’ll be running “It’s Up To You. The Future of Mess Up The Mess” – a week of activities where you can help decide what Mess Up The Mess does next.

We’ll be running the Summer programme online – using different channels so everyone will find something they feel comfortable doing. We are working on a plan for how we’ll return to more normal activities when Welsh Government Regulations allow. We’ll only do this when we judge it is safe to do so. And we’ll only do this in a way which is safe. This may mean that we’ll be running activities in different ways to how we’ve been used to.

Remember we are at the end of a phone, text or direct message and would love to hear from any of you just for a chat or if you need support with anything at all.
If you want to join in with any of these activities, or want to get in touch for any reason, you can:
