About Slow

Social Mission

Slow Theatre Company delivers ambitious cultural projects and events within the community, with the community.

Inclusion across race, ethnicity, health, disability, gender, age, religion, identity and experience is central to us as humans and us, as an organisation

A small not-for-profit organisation, we have a big heart, thus any profit we may earn, are spent on delivering the highest quality arts workshops, projects & classes with people, often facing personal challenges, without any theatre tradition.

Slow Theatre also delivers classes developing acting techniques, confidence, team building and imagination for children and young adults.

Our theatre practitioners and directors are all highly trained and working within the arts industry; whilst also trained to Designated Officer level in safeguarding.

Taking part in a Slow Theatre project or class, we encourage members to take risks, we help them to explore the world they live in, offer them something new to try, and at all times help them to feel supported.
