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.

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 be operating five-week terms for the group this term, 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.

Please note that some covid secure measures may remain in place for our Autumn term groups, at the Octagon’s own discretion. Please familiarise yourself with the guidance we have been using for the Summer term here before booking your place. We’ll be in touch before sessions start to confirm full details.
If new measures are introduced at any point and we aren’t able to meet in person, then sessions will move online.
