Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet recently. We’ve been moving house and leaving our home at St John at Hackney Church. We are also busy trying to secure Hackney Children’s Theatre future.
I started Hackney Children’s theatre to bring good affordable professional theatre for children to Hackney. The project was born out of a direct response to the children and parents from Adrenalindance’s 9 year residency in St John at Hackney Church.
Since 2011 we brought over 25 children’s performances as well as our annual family variety shows to Hackney. Over 7000 people have attended one of our Saturday theatre events. We say events because a show at Hackney Children’s Theatre was never about being well behaved in a black box theatre, we loved how vocal and at home our children where, we loved the interval activity and home baked CAKE .
It’s been fun seeking out brilliant children’s shows and sharing them with you. Many of you have thanked us for a wonderful/entertaining/crazy Saturday’s. None of this would have been possible without the support of over 200 volunteers who spent many hours and Saturdays getting the shows up, I salute these lovely friendly people.
With them and support of St john at Hackney Church we have been able to keep the price of a professional theatre show at £5, plus concessions .
Thank you for your support, we are here, just looking for a new home.
