Watch how Neil set up the Redz Performing Arts Academy in Camberley to help children from poorer backgrounds develop their skills and confidence 💃
Neil Braybrooke-Tidy thought Eagle Radio were coming to film his performing arts club, Redz in Camberley as part of a news item showcasing local drama groups in Surrey and Hampshire. However, his students and staff had nominated him for a Local Heroes Award for his dedication to developing young people and their confidence.
Redz Performing Arts Academy is open to children in Surrey Heath aged 3 to 16 years who are looking for affordable performing arts.
“I started Redz basically it was a low-cost performing arts [club] there are a lot of kids out there whose parents couldn't afford to send them to drama school/theatre school whatever when they were younger and so I wanted to provide a service so kids could come along for three hours and they could have lots of fun and not pay a lot of money for it.”
The above documentary was made my Greer Riddell for Eagle Radio to celebrate Neil achievements at Redz.
“The best thing about coming to Redz for me is probably knowing that I'm going to get here and do dancing and games and knowing that I'm going to have fun; it's so rewarding.”
“He never puts you down, he always he has a really good idea to do and he always is happy… he talks to everyone.”
“Neil also sees the potential of people, he always believes in you as well he won't ever think you can't do something.”
