‘To Boldly Go’ premiered at Tamworth Odeon on Friday 17th June at 10.45am and it was a huge success!
‘To Boldly Go’ is a film which aims to help other young people with learning difficulties have the confidence to use public transport on their own – have a look at our blog post about the project
The cast – the students and teachers at Two Rivers School Tamworth – arrived in style, stepping out of a bus (an apt choice of transport…watch the film and you’ll know!) – kindly provided by Arriva – onto a plush red carpet no less!
The Cast were met by a large crowd and were signing autographs left, right and centre – these students are movie stars and they sure acted the part. Beaming but, naturally, taking everything in their stride, the cast gave interviews to the media and an Oscars ceremony was held.

BBC Midlands Today posted a video of the premiere, which shows clips from the film, premiere and interviews with the cast who describe the warm reception they received from their audience:
‘Sprouting Zombies’ was premiered alongside ‘To Boldly Go’ – a film devised and filmed by Media Studies students from the school, to help learn the skills needed and processes involved in creating a film.

And in true Oscars style…A huge thank you to Odeon and Arriva; to Staffordshire County Council; to the Department of Transport and to BBC Midlands; and – most of all – thank you to all the students and teachers at Two Rivers – it has been an absolute pleasure and privilege working with. Thank you.
