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.

Little Bridges provides storytelling and sensory activities for younger participants aged 8-14. Little Bridges offers a nurturing and creative space for an exciting introduction to drama. Parents and carers are asked to remain on site for the duration of the session.

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.
