Including everyone

We are dedicated to becoming an anti-racist organisation, and to fighting discrimination in everything we do. We know we have a long way to go, but here are some of the steps we’re taking right now:

  • Educating ourselves about different forms of discrimination, by organising training and a speaker series for our staff – headed up by our new sub-group for Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Making a difference in the building by creating a code of conduct to help everyone feel welcome, and releasing a statement in support of trans artists
  • Making an active effort to programme artists from the global majority, who are disabled, LGBTQIA+, working class or who have another protected characteristic

If you have a suggestion for how we can improve, please email us:

Equal opportunities

As an equal opportunity employer, we recognise the diversity shortcomings of our industry and are committed to driving change and supporting employees to provide an inclusive workplace.

We welcome and encourage applications from individuals who face disadvantage through lived experience (i.e. no formal education/experience of homelessness) and/or who identify as:

  • D/deaf and/or disabled
  • Neurodiverse
  • Working-class, benefit class, underclass
  • LGBTQ+
  • Global majority and/or migrant

Anti-bullying statement

Are you attending a rehearsal, workshop or dance class, or performing at the Old Fire Station?

If you see or experience any inappropriate behaviour, we’re here.

Remember, it is never appropriate:

  • For someone to use their power abusively over anyone else
  • To verbally sexually objectify anyone’s body in a rehearsal room, dance class, workshop or theatre
  • For anyone to be made to feel vulnerable through nudity, undress or costuming
  • To make or send overly personal or suggestive remarks to a junior colleague or student
  • To initiate unwanted intimate physical contact

No one is alone. We believe that everyone has responsibility to stand up for each other, to call behaviour out and to report it. Do not be a bystander.

If you need to report anything, contact Becca: or Sarah: or call them: 01865 263980.
