New Creation Churches Building Better Community


We at AppleShed are launching weekly Inclusive Theatre workshops for children and young people and we’d like to invite you to join us. If you have an interest in drama, music or dance please come along to our seven week course, starting at the beginning of November.

What is Inclusive Theatre?

We believe that everybody can join in together, to gain skills and create performances that demonstrate the value in all of us. We welcome applicants with disabilities as well as those without. We share the same inclusive ethos as our friends at the world famous ChickenShed Theatre in London and are aiming to bring this to the West Country with love.

What is AppleShed?

We are a brand new theatre company but we have a big heart! Our practice leaders have been trained by ChickenShed and all have experience working in inclusive environments. All our adult helpers are DBS checked before they join us. The workshops will build up to a small informal performance in the final week of term. Next year (2018) we are aiming to put together a big show in July, when we’ll also be looking for backstage and front of house team members too. So there’s something to suit everyone!


Children (7-12yrs) meet on Thursday afternoons, 4.30 – 5.45pm.

Young People (12-18yrs) meet on Wednesday evenings, 6 – 7.15pm.
