It is with immense pleasure that we welcome aboard The Playground Theatre as our new partner!
The unique and creative Playground Theatre works with emerging and established artists in the UK and globally; seating up to 150 people, with a lovely cafe/bar and many exciting upcoming productions, you can now enjoy a show whilst sipping a cup of our delicious tea – as if you needed another reason to visit!
Pete Tate and Anthony Biggs are the co-artistic directors of this fabulous theatre, working together with the aspiration to program and develop an electric season that will engage different communities. Formerly a bus depot, The Playground Theatre then became a creative space for artists to experiment and play with ideas, a project funded by the Council of Arts as well as several charities.
Now a public theatre, it is located in a diverse community, with their work reflecting this. Many amazing projects have taken place at The Playground Theatre, such as ‘Terrific Electric’, an award winning production. Several well-known artists have also performed here, and Saliys Varnus (the current head of the National Theatre) has also worked with the organisation. The theatre program includes modern plays, classical concerts, film and dance – something for everyone!
When approached by The Playground Theatre, we were of course excited, as well as honoured and humbled for our tea to become part of the audience experience. So, don’t forget to pop down and get involved, learn about different forms of art in different disciplines, and enjoy a cup of Kettleshed tea!
