We provide theatre space for performance by people with learning disabilities and the wider community. We will eventually provide a platform for people with learning disabilities to learn skills in theatre related roles providing opportunities for work experience, volunteering and jobs.

We started a brand new Drama Group - Grace Eyre Street - back in January 2017 which culminated in a sell out show at the Purple Playhouse Theatre as part of Brighton Fringe Festival on 31st May. The show was about living on a street in Brighton and what goes on there. “Grace Eyre Street” Drama Group was led by Mark Richardson who was the Artistic Director of Carousel in Brighton for 22 years. Mark has been running drama and theatre projects together with people with learning disabilities for over 30 years. To read more about the project check out our news page or read their blog.
