  • Transform learning in classrooms.  Over 530,000 young people participated in education experiences last year and over 2,000 teachers received the training and resources they need to transform their classrooms into inspirational, life-changing learning environments. 
  • Train the next generation of talent.  We are committed to training theatre-makers and developing the best and brightest talent for the future. Our growing mentoring programme ensures best-practise techniques are passed on for future generations. 
  • Make theatre accessible for all.  Last year we sold over 10,000 discounted tickets for people with disabilities or their carers for Stratford-upon-Avon performances. We held 118 assisted performances which included 45 captioned, 45 audio described and 23 with a British Sign Language interpreter. 
  • Develop new writing.  We work with world-class writers who are creating the best possible new work that reflects the challenges and possibilities of our time.
