We're Behind You! - Preparing for a Healthy Panto Season in Scotland


BAPAM’s purpose is to improve health in the performing arts and support enhanced performance excellence through wellbeing and good practice. In partnership with Equity, we are pleased to offer this session specifically designed for performing artists and crew about to start the pantomime season.


Every year we see performing arts professionals with injuries which have happened during this very intense period. This 2-hour session will cover risk factors and key strategies to maintain good physical health over the panto season, how to avoid injury, recognise when problems are happening, where to go for help and tips for quick recovery.


It will focus on evidence-based practical skills and draws from research findings, performance experience, and proven clinical pathways.


As the largest provider of career-specific healthcare to performers in the UK, we are uniquely positioned to bring together expert clinicians, educators, researchers, artists and creators to deliver innovative training to empower the arts community to improve and maintain health throughout our creative work and learning spaces.


Tutor: Dr Sarah Upjohn - MA MCSP - Specialist Physiotherapist at BAPAM and the Purcell School for Young Musicians

Sarah qualified as a physiotherapist from the Bristol School of Physiotherapy in 1983 and has gained extensive clinical and educational experience. She has worked with musicians, actors, dancers and other arts professionals at BAPAM, the Purcell School and in her own practice since 2008. In 2019 she completed an education doctorate at Cambridge University where her thesis was about increasing awareness of risk factors for playing-related injuries in elite young musicians. She is a keen double bass player and singer.



Research looking at health issues within the performing arts workforce consistently finds that 70-75% of our population report both mental and physical health problems, which is much higher than the national average. We are lucky to be working with a number of health and wellbeing experts who can offer training to performers across the UK, with the aim of reducing the levels of poor health and supporting performers to have a sustainable career. Working with our partners in Equity, Musicians’ Union, Help Musicians UK and Performing Arts Education Providers - who are very kindly giving us free use of training venues - we are expanding our national training programme supporting healthy performance in the UK.
