Help us bag a share of Tesco bag fund!

Primary Playmaker is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000 raised from carrier bag sales awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and we’re delighted that Oxford Playhouse's Primary Playmaker has been selected for the customer vote for Oxford! Just head along to your local Tesco store in Oxford to cast your vote and help us win!


What is Primary Playmaker?

Designed to improve literacy, develop storytelling skills and encourage children's imaginations, Primary Playmaker is a unique opportunity for pupils to learn how to conceive and write their own short play and understand the development process which leads to a professional production. A selection of plays that have been written by pupils are then performed on the Oxford Playhouse main stage by professional actors as part of our Young Players' Festival - a celebration of work created and performed by young people.

How to vote?

Voting is open in all Tesco stores in Oxford throughout May and June, with customers given the chance to cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop. Tesco stores in Oxford taking part include:

  • Banbury Road, Oxford Express, OX2 7HN
  • Botley Road Express, OX2 9LH
  • Oxford, OX4 6XJ
  • Oxford Abingdon Road Express, OX1 4TJ
