OUR STAGE IS YOUR STAGE

Our community programme caters to all, with a vast range of workshops, participation and engagement opportunities for all ages, backgrounds and abilities. The PurpleDoor is a welcoming home to all who want to use it, and we’re always looking for ideas and suggestions. So if there’s a workshop you want to see, or a group who’d like to use the space, let us know and we’ll do our best to provide for you.

Get Involved!

Most of our programmes launch in 2021 when we have a physical space and when we can be together. However, some programmes will be launching in advance. This includes our our book club, which can take place online. Also launching this year, the PurpleDoor Emerging Critics scheme will train the next generation of theatre writers. Find out all our updates, including information of when to join, by signing up to our newsletter.
