HAPPY MONDAY FROM TEAM LUNG! We've been busy doing some evaluation! In Feb, 2761 people saw Trojan Horse in 11 venues across the UK. Since Summer 2018 a total of 11,045 people have seen the show, how amazing is that?! Take a lot at some of our Engagement Statistics too! Trojan Horse is produced in association with Leeds Playhouse with support from Arts Council England, Reflective Practice and MEND.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for the #TrojanHorseTour . It has been a privilege to travel across the country with the teachers & governors involved in the inquiries. Lots of exciting things ahead, but for now - that's a wrap!
