From all of us at Coney, we’d like to wish you a very happy New Year! We hope you’ve had a lovely end to 2018 and that you have plenty of adventures to look forward to in 2019.
A huge part of 2018 for Coney was our resident group of young people, the Young Coneys. Over the year they’ve created their own adventures at home with deliveries from our Magic Postal Service, and developed pieces for adults to play, from The Droves to Codename: Violet.

There’s no way we could have predicted the things these crackly and creative individuals invented last year. So looking ahead, we asked the kids themselves to tell us what they hope 2019 will bring. Here’s what they said:
To have a wonderful year and lots of shows and fun!”
New show, More things to do at home :)”
To meet more famous people and not any bossy people”
To perform a production”
Help each other, be kind, have fun”
To perform in a big crowd with props (realistic)”
To perform a show again like The Droves. That was fun and exciting!”
More performances that are really really good (they will be)”
To perform with famous people
Our programme announcement for 2019 is coming soon. Look out for that to find out more about what to expect this year, and of course what the Young Coneys will be up to. And if you’d like to be the first to hear about new projects and ways you can be involved, make sure to sign up for our mailing list here.
