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 Youth Theatre is 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.

If you are interested in joining and are new to the group, then please email participation@octagonbolton.co.uk to speak to a member of the team.
