Theatre Companies for Adults with Additional Needs

Our Wednesday and Friday Community Companies offer theatre workshops for adults with learning disabilities. Weekly sessions are open to anyone over the age of 25 who wishes to continue, or start, their theatre journey. Workshop content includes exploring creativity and developing personal and social skills, all within a supportive and fun environment.

Hitherto, the Friday Company produced work for our annual event FestivALL with performances created by local people with additional needs. For 2021, when FestivALL went online, the Friday Company created a short film exploring what they would do as Prime Minister which you can watch on our YouTube channel.

It’s a change of scene for me, it gets me out of the house and it’s nice to do something different
