Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company that first began in 1974. They create theatre for all ages and run successful outreach projects, education courses and membership programmes throughout the year.
Their vision is a society that enables everyone to flourish, and Chickenshed’s mission is to create entertaining and outstanding theatre that celebrates diversity and inspires positive change.
Chickenshed runs children’s and youth theatres for over 800 young people, operates three nationally accredited education courses, engages in community outreach projects and has established a growing network of ‘sheds’ across the UK and two in Russia.

They are unique in developing and celebrating the creative energy of people who would never normally meet, much less have the opportunity to work together to produce life changing theatre.
As well as offering over 250 performances per year, Chickenshed are also an educational establishment delivering Further and Higher Education courses. With Children’s and Youth Theatre membership schemes for 5 – 21 year olds and an ongoing programme of outreach projects working with some of the hardest to reach communities, Chickenshed truly represents ‘Theatre Changing Lives’.
