Exciting Workshops for All Ages

Keep the children entertained during weekends and school holidays by signing them up to a fun, educational and creative workshop. Whether you’re the parent of a budding actor or just looking for some new pals in the area, the Chickenshed offers a variety of workshops throughout the year.

The best part? While you’re kids are off exploring their own creativity, you can do the same by signing up to the adult workshops, which are on offer, too.

Support a Great Cause

By attending Chickenshed theatre performances or workshops, you are supporting a fantastic cause – an organisation that is focused on developing the creative energy of more than 800 young people through their children’s and youth theatres. On top of that, you will be contributing to the initiatives’ continuous community outreach projects and Further and Higher Educational programmes.

Pay What You Want

Chickenshed believes in making theatre accessible to everyone, therefore their Youth Company performances operate on a “pay what you want” scheme. You can choose to pay anywhere from £3 to £100 per ticket, without judgement. This community understands that finances play a big role when it comes to enjoying a day out with the family and wants to facilitate this experience by ways of an inclusive payment system.

Become a Part of their Community

Once you’ve experienced Chickenshed, there’s a good chance your kids will want to become an ongoing part of this exciting community. The programmes are open to everyone under the age of 21 and are designed to broaden kids' horizons through theatrical performances, play and community spirit.
