Work in your Community
Oldham Coliseum Theatre’s Outreach work offers an opportunity for groups who may not usually access the work of the theatre to take part in creative activities. We provide a range of opportunities for learning, participation and performance that have a positive effect on personal development and are an alternative way to engage with the theatre.
Creative programmes and workshops can be tailored to enhance language development, improve literacy, develop social and cultural awareness and team building skills. Projects enable groups to have fun exploring issue based work through drama activities.
Two hour workshop: £75
One hour workshop: £40
Project packages: 6 x 2 hour workshops: £400
Research and development session x 2 hours: £40
Get in Touch
Workshops range from a one off session to a year long programme of work. We offer advice and support right through the project, from seeking funding to delivering tailor made programmes. Whether you’re a group looking for innovative ways to explore issues, an individual with an idea, a business looking to develop skills, or just want to have fun creating theatre, get in touch for more information.
