Tramshed makes relevant, inclusive and challenging theatre for, with and by young people aged 5-25.  We use the power of the arts to enrich the lives of young people and audiences and seek to enable, empower and challenge participants through delivering work of artistic excellence. We do this by:

  • Producing professional theatre and arts for touring to schools and other venues
  • Offering theatre and arts opportunities in the form of after school groups and weekend and holiday activities
  • Delivering drama and arts projects in schools
  • Delivering artistic projects for young people who are at risk of exclusion
