For Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
Luke’s award winning Road Safety shows have been performed in hundreds of schools for more than ten years.
Luke created these Road Safety Shows with the assistance of John Gobbi, Road Safety Officer for Pembrokeshire, who was instrumental in launching the project. Since then Luke has worked for almost every council in Wales and the shows have been seen by thousands of children across the country.
In 2001 this theatre in education initiative won the Welsh Road Safety Awards and following this the Welsh Assembly Government published a colour book of the Road Safety Show which was distributed to every child in Wales.

Luke performs two Road Safety Shows. Each of the shows are a contemporary, innovative and fun-filled learning experience that teaches the children about road safety while keeping them entertained at the same time.
The shows are suitable for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Using juggling, magic and puppets the Road Safety Shows teach the children about safe places to cross roads, the importance of bright clothing, cycling safety and general traffic awareness.
The whole theatre show is set against a bright backdrop of working Pelican Crossings, a Zebra Crossing and a model car. Luke uses the participation of the children (not the teachers!) throughout the show to ensure everyone stays involved. The Road Safety Shows are funny, well-paced and a delight to watch, each one being relevant to its age group.
“This was probably the best show I have ever seen performed in school. Luke had great rapport with the children and very skilfully mixed the fun and magic with the serious message of Road Safety. It was an absolute pleasure to see the reactions of the children.”
S. Jenkins, Head-teacher, Cwm Ifor Primary
“Fantastic, informative and amusing show. The best I have seen in 30 years.”
M. Allen, Treherbert school
“A fantastic show – superbly delivered. Engaged all the children in a fun filled session but with a serious message. I’m sure the children will remember the show and the Road Safety messages.”
