Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is proud to be the official theatre partner for
The Diana Award’s AntiBullying Programme.
“The show encourages everyone, particularly young people, to be themselves and educates the audience about the power of language and the need to celebrate difference.”
Alex Holmes, Deputy CEO, The Diana Award
The Diana Award is the only charity in memory of Princess Diana and her belief that young people have the power to change the world. Her sons The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex are advocates for the charity, which supports young people through three key programmes; a mentoring programme for young people at risk, a youth-led anti-bullying ambassadors’ campaign and a prestigious award that publicly recognises young people – The Diana Award.
The Charity runs the leading Anti-Bullying Campaign in the UK and Ireland, giving young people the skills, confidence and training to tackle all forms of bullying in schools, communities and online. One of their main projects is the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme which has trained over 32,000 young people across the UK to lead on anti-bullying campaigns in their schools and is free to schools across the UK.
To date, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has raised thousands of pounds through bucket collections, held a celebrity gala evening as well as a musical theatre workshop to raise awareness for the charity during Anti-Bullying Week. Our very own Jamie Campbell has hosted a self-esteem and confidence workshop, marched alongside the charity at Pride and participated in The Diana Award’s #Back2School campaign to support the 10 million children in school, over half of whom will be affected by bullying. You can view Jamie’s #Back2School video here.
“We shouldn’t have to live in a world where bullying exists and the best way to tackle it is through education. Charities like The Diana Award and their Anti-Bullying programme and campaign do great work in raising the self-esteem of individuals and it is an honour to be working with this charity.”
