Tie Tours, an international theatre, education and training company carried out a detailed UK study with people between the ages of 13 - 17 years old. We explored bullying through the medium of theatre with young people in schools, youth clubs and in the open-air. During 1997 Tie Tours toured to these venues across England, performing plays and running 'anti-bullying' workshops with the audiences. Afterwards all participants were given a questionnaire to fill in. One of the questions on the questionnaire was: "What do you think is the best way to stop bullying? The answers to this were varied, some were not as specific as others and required a certain amount of interpretation.

This report is based upon the answers given.
