Our work with schools, colleges and youth groups

Towngate Theatre aims to make the world of theatre accessible to all! We strongly believe in the importance of education and outreach work in primary schools, secondary schools and colleges as well as youth groups.

We offer workshops covering devising, performance and technical skills, as well as bespoke workshops tailored to the needs of your school or college.

If you would like to book one of our workshops listed below, or if you have a specific workshop or project in mind we would love to hear from you.
