'ReachOut Arts are the go-to immersive events and theatrical company for the award- winning Severn Valley Railway! Working with Saskia and Gem is an absolute pleasure; they understand how we work as a business and what our passengers want to see. They appreciate the historic nature of our attraction and the importance of working with Volunteers to produce forward-thinking experiences.
ReachOut Arts have designed and created a number of bespoke experiences for our visitors, introducing whole new events to cater for both the young and the young at heart. The Railway’s mission is to inspire future generations, and the events we have produced with ReachOut Arts have certainly done that. We have seen our TripAdvisor reviews rocket in the past year, with more five-star reviews than ever received for our Santa Trains, Wizard Express and Make Me A Train Driver Workshops. Over 10,000 people travelled on our recent Santa Trains and the theatre show produced by the team was enjoyed by everyone in attendance; following the event we sent out a visitor survey asking people to rate the quality of the show - 95% of passengers rated it good or very good.
Working with and supporting a local company is extremely important to us as a company.'
I can’t thank Reach Out Arts enough. I used their creative consultancy and met Sas and Gem to discuss an upcoming project. I had a decent concept but extremely tight deadlines and a fear of it not happening. The efficiency and directness of their meetings is astonishing and the final results outstanding. The meetings are direct, to the point and entirely action led - their ability to be so direct and still so personable is wonderful to work with. You leave each meeting, not only with a sense of direction but also an overarching sense of achievement and excitement for your project. They helped build confidence in my own ideas and helped direct me in the precise way I needed them to in order to launch the project on time and far beyond the standard I was even hoping for. I would recommend their services to anyone looking a creative input to any part of a business! Thank you so much!--

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does ReachOut Creative actually do?
In a nutshell, we provide a team to work alongside you or on your behalf with creativity and implementation of ideas from concept design to delivery. Supporting attractions and businesses with their visitor engagement, whether thats assisting with every day experiences, educational elements, special events, immersive events or theatrical productions.
What's the process?
Well, you book a creative meeting with our company directors, who then assess your needs and provide you with various options to suit your budget and needs, whether you just want a little helping hand or want us to fully manage a project from start to finish. It is very much so a collaborative approach where we can take on the lion's share or you can delegate certain elements to us.
Do I need to have a big venue or a business owner to work with you?
Not at all, as Shakespeare said 'all the world's a stage' we have delivered events and theatre in a variety of venues from someone's front room right up to large arenas. We can support you with bringing your venue to life through event design, concepts, characters , improvised immersive experiences and where needed scripted performances too.
Whether you want support with a special celebration or birthday party, or a month long run of a full scale theatre production. If it's a creative sparkle you are looking for we can help.
Why do I need your services?
We always see value in enhancing what your visitors get out of attending a venue or event, as well as the positive impact upon your business. As guests are now expecting much more for their hard earned money and looking for more of an experience, we feel it is important to put a focus on the detail, we know that as business owners or managers the day to day often takes the time away from being able to do that, that's where we come in. The testimonials and figures from our returning clients show that on events where we have supported delivery or created a concept, there was a significant increase in positive feedback, an increase in on site visitor spend and an increase in returning guests.
