Half Moon has two main thrusts of activity –
· producing and presenting professional theatre at the base, in venues, and in youth and schools settings
· providing an extensive participatory programme, including youth theatres, school and community projects.
“The hottest place in London for young people.” Evening Standard
Half Moon is a small theatre in Limehouse, Tower Hamlets, nestled in an area of high deprivation between London’s two financial centres, the City and Canary Wharf. The theatre is a centre of excellence with a focus of theatre work for and with young people from birth to age 17. We place a particular emphasis upon engaging those often excluded in terms of culture and ability.
Annually over 32,000 individuals participate in a range of activities, 60% of users are from Black and Minority Ethnic groups and 10% are disabled. Half Moon is a regular funded client of Arts Council London, London Councils and London Borough of Tower Hamlets, with further financial support from trusts and foundations and commercial sources.
