Chickenshed was created in 1974 with the modest aim of acting as a community theatre. Today, Chickenshed aims to be truly inclusive, bringing people together of all ages and backgrounds. Chickenshed's motto of 'theatre changing lives' doesn't just extend to its productions. It has since expanded into the world of education, offering people a range of further and higher education courses. The theatre also runs community outreach projects which aim to engage with hard-to-reach communities.
Chickenshed is now home to two indoor theatres, an outdoor amphitheatre and a bar/restaurant. The heart of Chickenshed is its 292 seat Rayne Theatre. The Rayne Theatre's flat, accessible stage allows performers and designers to create the most imaginative and inclusive performances. The theatre's smaller shows take place in the 68 seat Studio Theatre, while its outdoor amphitheatre opens up in the summer months. Altogether Chickenshed hosts over 250 performances a year.
Chickenshed's success has led the company to perform at numerous high-profile public events. One notable example is Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2002. The theatre has also set up 19 offshoot 'Sheds' across the UK, all of which share Chickenshed's inclusive ethos. Don't miss this organisation's exciting, inclusive shows.
