About Us

Active since 1989, Theatre Exchange is a regional, innovative company that specialises in bringing educational, historical theatre workshops to primary schools. We also produce rural touring such as our original play Our June’s Wedding, pop-up theatre for early years such as MoonBrella, holiday workshops and much more! 


 We are dedicated to developing quality theatre for audiences who have less accessibility to the arts in their area, with particular emphasis on rural/semi-rural communities.


As of 2020, Theatre Exchange is a community interest company and is looking forward to a bright future!
