We work with those excluded or at risk of exclusion, underachievers, young offenders and many others in a range of challenging social settings.


In 2007 Hardknock Productions went to Feltham and worked with inmates to explore issues close to their hearts and reflect on the world as they see it.

Work in Prisons 

Feltham Young Offenders Institution is a male juvenile's prison and Young Offenders Institution, located near Feltham town in the London Borough of Hounslow, in southwest London, England.


Feltham Prison is operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service. Participatory drama workshops were used as a tool to engage debate and promote positive personal development.
