Unique Voice patron, Sir Patrick Stewart visited Oasis Academy John Williams today to see Me + You = 4eva in action. Sir Patrick was invited by Unique Voice to see the performance and workshops which focus on recognising positive and negative behaviour within relationships. Before introducing Me + You = 4eva, Sir Patrick talked to the students about his own personal experience as a child witnessing domestic violence against his mother. He explained that “it was not taken seriously” and that domestic violence “was something to be ashamed of – a secret”.
Impressed with the work that Unique Voice are presenting to school children, Sir Patrick described it as “magnificent” and “remarkable”. Mr Stewart believes that awareness of domestic violence is “improving dramatically because organisations like this are letting people know what the facts of domestic violence are.”
Unique Voice Company Director Krystal Keeley, said the team were “overjoyed” to welcome Sir Patrick Stewart to see their work first hand.
