Founded in 1979 in the heart of the former Welsh coalfields, Spectacle Theatre Ltd pioneered access to live theatre and new writing in Welsh and English. Through partnership working, we deliver an innovative bi-lingual theatre service (workshops, production and mentoring), locally, nationally and internationally.

Our vision at Spectacle Theatre is to create participatory theatre that is fully inclusive and meaningful, is integrated into our lives and contributes to the wellbeing of our community. This vison sits at the heart of our professional programme of participatory theatre productions, drama-based workshops and mentoring service.
