Mousetrap Theatre Experience, London

The Nystagmus Network is considering organising a theatre experience for children and young people with nystagmus and their families, in partnership with Mousetrap Theatre Projects.
The day would include a drama workshop, touch tour of the theatre (where children get to see costumes and props up close) and tickets for a London show. It would also be a great opportunity to meet up with other nystagmus families.
