Ignite Theatre

Ignite Theatre logo

Ignite Theatre works with children and young people aged 6-24 from diverse backgrounds who live primarily in the North and West of Glasgow. Our members come from across the globe; from Scotland to Somalia, and includes new members from Syria. Many of our members face multiple challenges, whether that is poverty, discrimination, being a young carer, or having additional needs.

Through free weekly workshops and innovative drama projects, Ignite Theatre offers its members a supported environment in which they can fulfill their creative potential, develop confidence, forge new friendships and build their life skills to give them a better chance of achieving their goals.

For more of a sense of what we are about, follow this link to BBC Arts to see a short film made about our Seniors group last year as part of the BBC’s Theatre and Refugees season (curated by Vicky Featherstone).
