People's Company

People's Company

As a People’s Company member you can get involved in a variety of workshops – ranging from skills based courses in theatre and performance, through to one-offs in puppetry, dance or even back-stage roles. There are regular performance opportunities including the chance to get involved in productions in The Drum.

All of our People’s Company courses and activities are open to anyone over the age of 18. No previous experience is necessary and if you have any access requirements, simply let us know when booking. The most important thing is that you want to have a go!
