With Eyes Wide Open (2009-2010)

“Blending members’ stories with music and song” – ULearn

With Eyes Wide Open is a new Banner production, developed with UNISON, the public sector trade union, and highlights the vital importance of education in helping to develop confidence and personal fulfillment amongst union representatives, as well as helping encourage increased activism in the union.

This 30-minute show combines original music and song with archive film, digital imagery and video interviews with UNISON members and officers, to create a powerful and highly entertaining piece of trade union entertainment.

The show was premiered in the West Midlands at UNISON branches in Coventry, Telford, Wolverhampton and Worcester during Adult Learners Week 2010, and was also performed at this year’s UNISON national conference in Bournemouth in June.

The show is now available for booking by UNISON branches throughout the United Kingdom. Contact the Banner office for details.
