HandMade Theatre

Unique, sustainable, engaging work with people at its heart.


What We Do...


We use live performances to tell unique stories and bring experiences of wonder to families across the UK.

We are deliberately small scale and self-sufficient to ensure we can easily perform anywhere, indoors and out. Anything from a school hall, community park, nature reserve to a theatre venue or large festival, we even bring our own seating. We believe that this ability to perform anywhere encourages access to theatre for anyone.

Our touring work is designed for family audiences and although it is often steered towards children, we try to make our performances a truly interactive and engaging experience for the whole family to enjoy together.
