Tyler Edwards·Fun loving and always up to a challenge
I am currently studying for my A Levels, and work most weekends as a live actor on HMS Warrior in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, I first started working with children through my work with the TYCP and have loved the diversity of the job ever since I joined the HAF projects over the past few years. My favourite thing about my job is allowing children to find new ways ti express themselves in the form of the arts and having fun in social settings, I love seeing the transformation from nervous to running up to people giving them high fives, loving any challenge however big or small

Hi- I’ve been working in education nearly 20 years. As an actor and artist I get to share my passion and inspire people to fall in love with the arts.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.
