Welcome to Head2Head Sensory Theatre
Head2Head Sensory Theatre is a registered charity dedicated to the Special Needs’ Community. We are passionate about making theatre accessible to all and understand that families who have a child with a disability face many barriers. We raise awareness, share knowledge and develop new ways to make this happen. We include opportunities for self-development and learning by offering work experience to students transitioning from education.!

Everyone connected with H2H was saddened at the death of Terry Jones, a Patron since inception, whose support and encouragement will be greatly missed. He had attended several performances and given permission for some of his children’s stories to be adapted into sensory shows. Poignantly, a performance of his ‘Chicken Circus’ was being given to special schoolchildren as the news of his death was announced.
Ways to Fundraise
Make a Donation
Whatever you wish to give, we will gratefully receive and put to good use in our volunteer-led charity, where every penny is spent on providing holiday activities for children and young people with disabilities.
“My son has a short attention span usually but was fully engaged in this throughout as they gave him a role to play and improvised around him. We hope it didn’t impinge on anyone else’s enjoyment. They were all laughing as well so we really relaxed and enjoyed it instead of being stressed by trying to make him conform his behaviour.”
“An amazing opportunity for my son to engage in theatre. He loves coming to Head2Head and it is one of the very few things we can do as a family that both of our special needs children enjoy. We are indebted to you all.”
“It’s our 4th year attending, our children just love being in amongst the acting, getting involved with all of the props, dressing up and singing. A really great time out for the whole family It is amazing, everything about it. We cannot fault it here in Chichester.”
“Fun, engaging, small group enabled it to be very interactive, colourful and delightful, friendly and very hardworking acting people. More shows please and availability throughout the year!”
“As usual, the team at Head2Head made the groups feel welcomed, safe and take a personalised approach. They are very patient and flexible. The activity was even more fun and engaging than usual! A lot of thought was put in it to appeal to children and young people with all kinds of interests and needs.”
“It was outstanding. The way the actors fully engaged the entire audience – PMLD, verbal, non-verbal, wheelchair user or hyperactive, all of them, was great. Seeing both of my sons (who have very different needs) engaging and enjoying themselves in their own way was fantastic. To hear their giggles, see smiles and peals of laughter as one hit Captain Hook on the bottom with a toy sword will be a treasured memory! Thank you for providing this short break activity. It remains the highlight of each holiday and is still the ONLY activity we do in which BOTH of my SEN children are fully included and enjoy themselves. You are a credit to the SEN community. Thank you.”
