Forest Forge Theatre has been delivering theatre to communities for 40 years. The work we do as a charity touches lives, provides an outlet for creativity and aids with the mental health and wellbeing of people of all ages.

“We know online is not the same as being in the wonderful theatre space we have at Forest Forge, but our sessions are run by theatre professionals who make the experience engaging, creative, and a fantastic way to interact with others - which is what we all desperately need right now.”
