While we wait to welcome you back to Contact, our plans, events and projects carry on.

Like other theatres and arts venues across the UK, we remain closed during the current pandemic. However, we still have plenty going on during this time, so we’ve put together this round-up page with all the details.

Help us Light up the Stage for the Next Generation

We are close to completing our amazing building redevelopment, but we still need your help to create a fabulous and supportive home for the next generation of performers, creatives and community leaders. Donate here.

Developing the Next Generation

During the first national lockdown, we moved several of our ongoing projects online. In 2021 We continue to remotely support and mentor young people in The Agency, Future Fires and Level Up through online workshops and resources, as well as safe, in-person sessions where restrictions have allowed.

Contact Young Company created their first ever entirely digital-based show The Starter Kit in November 2020. Look out for a filmed version coming soon.

We’ve partnered with RECLAIM Project for Creative Protagonists, a programme for young working-class creatives.

Young Identity’s workshops restarted in safe and socially-distanced sessions at our building up until lockdown, and are currently running online via Zoom. They’re open to everyone from the novice rhymer to veteran poetry slammer!

Announcements and Commissions

We’re continuing to work with partnering organisations and develop opportunities to young artists to create new performances and works. We’ll continue to update you on where their creative journeys take them.
