Peaceful Lion Productions was founded in 2006 by Ollie Fielding to produce stylish productions with a hint of mischief, a dab of spectacle and a sprinkling of the fantastic for audiences of all ages.
We run a Theatre for Hospitals initiative, our aim is simple: to provide a permanent touring ensemble, dedicated to taking children's theatre across UK hospitals, all year-round and to become a permanent part of the inpatient and outpatient experience, adding to the patient experience and contributing to the community of care.
Being in hospital can be a scary and lonely time for a child. The performances aim to make that difficult time a little easier. Our artistic mission is to ensure that all hospitalised children, their families and medical staff can engage in an uplifting and inclusive theatrical experience. We can provide a sense of relief and a feeling of precious normality for children who are often unable to access any stimulating or fun activities. To some, the performances will be their first experience of theatre.
"This is amazing. It makes me happy! The songs are very nice and the characters are funny. I loved the spider and rapping King! I have never seen anything like this before." H aged 18 years (patient)
"I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely performance of Rhyming Capers at Great Ormond Street hospital last week. My son was an inpatient and the show really cheered him up and brought him some entertainment from the "outside world". The actors were so engaging and funny, and it was wonderful to see my son laugh! I wish you all the best for your future plans and hope the hospital scheme will be a success." R (parent) with son E aged 6 (patient)
