Take Part


The Participation team at Nottingham Playhouse runs many varied programmes for the rich and diverse people and communities of Nottingham. These take place both in our building and at other locations around the city and county.

On these web pages you will find information about the many ways you can take part, whatever your age, whatever your experience and whatever your access needs.

Every one of our programmes has bursary places.

There is something here for everyone. Do get in touch if you’d like to know more participation@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk.

We would love to hear from you.

Classes and Courses

Our classes and courses cover a range of topics from ballroom dancing to painting.

Young People

Nottingham Playhouse runs a variety of participation groups that enable young people to engage with and create theatre.


Whatever your previous experience, we offer creative, enriching and social participation programmes for people over the age of 55.


Our priority is to build long-term partnerships with our local schools and offer a range of creative programmes to enjoy.


We run community projects to engage with young people and communities who don't have easy access to the arts.
