Our award-winning Bridges programme enables young people and adults with additional needs and learning disabilities to take part in drama and performance opportunities at the Octagon Theatre. We have three groups spanning different age ranges. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to discuss participant needs.
We are planning for our summer term sessions to take place in our new building. If the guidance changes then we will move our sessions online to Zoom.
The summer term will run from the week beginning 26 April 2021.
Bookings are now open here or by phoning our Box Office on 01204 520661. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. We suggest you book early so that you don’t miss out! If you have any questions about any of the groups please email email@example.com
Bridges Youth Theatre: Thursdays, 4.30-6pm (suggested ages 16-30; please contact us to discuss participant's individual needs)
A theatre-based group for young people who are interested in drama and performing, and want to get creative in a supportive environment. Our tailored sessions enable young people to learn new skills, share ideas and connect with others.
Little Bridges: Wednesdays, 5-6pm (ages 8-14)
Storytelling and sensory activities for younger participants aged 8-14. Little Bridges offers a nurturing and creative space for an exciting introduction to drama.
Please note that we will be operating a 5 week term for Little Bridges this summer, starting on Wednesday 9 June and running until Wednesday 7 July.
Bridges Company: Mondays, 1-2.30pm (suggested ages 25+; please contact us to discuss participant’s individual needs)
Bridges Company offers adult participants a chance to work collaboratively to perform for audiences. The sessions provide acting opportunities in an inclusive setting, with the emphasis being on gaining confidence and improving collaborative skills.
Please note that we will operating 5 week terms instead of 10 week terms for Bridges Company, with the intention of offering places to participants on alternate terms. This will ensure that as many of our participants get to join in as possible whilst we work with smaller groups.
We are able to offer a small number of bursary places for participants facing financial hardship, thanks to the generosity of our funders. To enquire about a supported place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
