Our Mission, Aims and Beliefs


    Our mission is to provide a welcoming home for creative adventures and human connection; to offer incredible theatre and opportunities to learn and exchange ideas.



    Our vision is to build an inclusive creative community rooted in our home in South Bristol. Our inspirational theatre will take people on creative adventures, nurture talent and provide life-changing opportunities.



    1. We started as an experiment and we encourage experimentation.
    2. We are ambitious and we encourage ambition: we tell epic stories in small spaces.
    3. We seek as wide an audience for our work as possible.
    4. Our diverse programme is our cornerstone but we are a place of creation, development and learning, as well as performance.
    5. We never forget that our audience is our reason for existence.


    1. Be a cultural resource that is accessible to, and works positively for, its community.
    2. Produce and present a year-round rich and varied programme of theatre and other performing arts.
    3. Develop partnerships with individual artists, theatre companies, venues and other organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
    4. Be managerially and financially sustainable.
