Miranda-Hart_epicMiranda Hart, Comedy Actress and Writer “I have known Epic Arts since its conception and I continue to admire and support its commitment to those with disabilities. When I worked for Epic Arts it was impossible not to be inspired by its passion and skill in using creative arts to transform lives, promote integration and create community. And as an actress it is wonderful to be involved in a charity where my love of theatre and the arts is used to such a wonderful, life changing effect.”
