Highly Sprung Performance Company was formed in 2000 out of a passion to use the transformative power of physical theatre to create work that both excites and inspires children and young people. Highly Sprung Performance Company became a charity in 2018 to better support the work we do with and for children and young people.
The company has a strong and diverse team of excellent artists and is recognised for producing outstanding participatory projects, working with over 10,000 children and young people annually.
Highly Sprung’s work places value on the genuine input and engagement of young people whilst maintaining high artistic standards and quality outcomes. Our style of performance and approach to working with children and young people is particularly effective in engaging new audiences, it develops a language which is at once universal and emotionally engaging. In participation work our approach quickly breaks down barriers and places equal responsibility and value on each individuals’ talent and contribution, regardless of their previous experience.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
