Theatre and Special Events in Tameside

Family Theatre Programme
We aim to provide a balanced and professional family arts and theatre programme. We generally use our galleries, libraries and community spaces to host our theatre programme.

We also want to make the performances as relaxed as possible; however, some of the shows may contain flashing lights and/or loud noises. We are working to increase the spaces we use, however some may not have the best access depending upon the venue.

We will include venue and show accessibility information with all of our performances. We are happy to discuss any specific needs, the accessibility of our performances and any adjustments that may be required.

Theatre in the Parks Programme
Our outdoor summer theatre series traditionally runs in a variety of urban parks across the borough. These parks generally have excellent access and facilities. We try to ensure these events are only held in parks with accessible welfare facilities. Our contact number is on all of our promotional material and our staff are happy to discuss any specific needs, the accessibility of our performances and any adjustments that may be required.
 


2021 Special Events

 

Dommy B’s Best Adventure Ever!

Tuesday October 26th 2021
Live performance



Presented by Dominic Berry

Big Imaginations regular and CBeebies 'Rhyme Rocket' poet Dommy B goes back on tour with 'Dommy B's Best Adventure Ever!', a fantastically fun show for children 5+ and their families.

Dommy B's Best Adventure Ever! is an engaging and hilarious show full of rhymes, silliness, and a lot of joining in, as the audience help Dommy B embark on his greatest challenge yet!

Welcome to a normal, everyday primary school. The children here have the same worries as any children in any primary school would have... dealing with task-setting teachers, horrible homework, scary school bullies... plus, of course, magic-casting goblins and smelly dragons! How does anyone even just get safely through to the end of the day?

The audience will guide the action as Dommy B improvises around their suggestions, creating a whole fantastical world on stage with only his words and imagination. 

Dommy B's charming shows have toured around theatres, festivals and schools nationally and world-wide, delighting children and presenting them with lovable, accessible poetry.

Dommy B says, “I love performing kid’s shows because children make the best audiences! As well as loads of fun, I’m hoping to offer my audiences a really good experience of poetry, so that they’ll see that it’s not boring, or something that you’ve got to be a grown up to understand and enjoy. It’s something everyone can join in with, and most importantly have a great time listening to!”

Sue and Sita

Wednesday October 27th 2021
Live performance



 

Presented by Ri Ri’s Dance Academy
Who would have thought a kite festival could change your life?
 
It certainly came as a surprise to Sue whose magical journey into a classic Indian tale dating back hundreds of years revealed as much about herself as about historic Indian culture.
 
She is amazed to find that she has more in common with the goddess Sita, than she would have thought.
 
Sue & Sita uses puppetry, shadow theatre, and dance to celebrate identity and heritage.
