Thanks for all your support this year. We can't do what we do without you. 2015 was a very special year as it marked our 10th birthday. 


You can read all about the celebrations by clicking here.

Also, check out #1623is10 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for photos and words on our first 10 years of seeing Shakespeare differenty.

Next year will be our most ambitious one yet, as we work on bringing you the pilot production of Lear/Cordelia, a new double-bill of Shakespeare and new writing that explores the impact of dementia on modern family life.

Lear/Cordelia is supported by Arts Council England, Derby Theatre, Attenborough Arts in Leicester, Derby City Council and QUAD. Find out more by clicking here.

We really hope that you'll be able to join us at our performances and workshops in 2016. In the meantime....

Go and see Derby Theatre's Cinderella, based on the folktale Cap o'Rushes, which partly inspired Shakespeare to write King Lear. It's a beautiful show made with love for all the family. 

All best festive wishes

Ben, artistic director
Chris, creative producer
Jamie, learning coordinator
Kat, training coordinator
