Chickenshed bring 600 children together for a monumental performance at the Royal Albert Hall, in partnership with Amnesty International.

In an uplifting and inspiring visual spectacular, Dreams of Freedom gathers the thoughts and voices of young people from across London into a vibrant exploration of freedom and identity. Young performers from across state, independent and SEN schools will come together with Chickenshed’s Children’s Theatre members to express their hopes for a better world through music, movement and song.

The performance has been inspired by Amnesty’s children’s book of the same name, which combines the words of human rights heroes, such as the Dalai Lama, Anne Frank, Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousafzai with beautiful illustrations from renowned international artists including Oliver Jeffers and Chris Riddell. With original music and lyrics, backed by the 100-strong Young Singers Choir, Dreams of Freedom promises to be a truly powerful, moving and unforgettable evening.
