Theatre for All

Our multi-accessible performance style is a distinct and exciting theatrical form, appealing to a wide range of established and new audiences and participants.

Face Front runs three programmes:

Engaging and accessible issue-based theatre to improve children and young people’s emotional well-being.

Professional disabled and non-disabled artists run theatre performance and workshop programmes for special and mainstream schools, supporting their social, educational and creative development.

Topics include domestic abuse, sex and relationships, bullying and the transition of disabled children from school to adult life.

Arts projects and workshops for disabled and non-disabled young people and adults to improve confidence, reduce isolation and gain arts and social skills 

Training in the arts, education, health and diversity.

Including courses, master classes and work placement schemes for emerging disabled artists, for policy makers, health, education and social care professionals, for companies and other organisations around diversity, disability equality and unconscious bias.

‘I have always found the organisation to produce work of quality and have been particularly impressed by the way they develop disabled artists and make their work accessible to disabled audiences’.

Is it for you?

We work with and for people with physical, sensory and learning impairments, invisible disabilities and mental health issues, as well as disadvantaged, non-disabled people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. 

Disabled people in particular face multiple challenges, including restricted access to leisure, employment and education due to physical, attitudinal and communication barriers as well as active discrimination. 

Many young people we work with experience emotional and mental health issues – especially from experience of domestic abuse, bullying or the transition from school to adult life. Older and disabled beneficiaries face social isolation and poverty.

At the core of all our work is our belief that 'it's about belonging'. We bring people together through the arts to improve quality of life. Participants in our regular groups value their Face Front ‘family’ or ‘community’ and build support networks around their theatre participation.

‘The varied groups of actors have always demonstrated high levels of performing excellence and an ability to engage with young audiences. This testifies to the rigorous training and support which Face Front invests in their actors and the dedication to the aims of inclusive theatre.’
