Access Theatre

Access Theatre is an inclusive group offering access to the performing arts fro individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity - adults with learning disabilities and a range of physical and sensory impairments. They meet weekly for drama activities and regularly produce high quality public performances.

The Ruth Burden Community Trust awarded £1,000 to Access Theatre in the Summer 2016 towards their musical 'Greece Lightning'. Over 100 people attended this production, which Access Theatre were thrilled about. 

Sarah Pym, the Co-ordinator commented 'The grant made the Greece Lightning production possible; without the help, we would not have secured the services of a skilled professional or support our volunteers properly'.
