Our charity

As a registered charity we are dedicated to the advancement of the arts in West Berkshire.
We offer open access to disadvantaged groups in the community, the elderly, the differently abled, young people from all backgrounds, and those without easy access to the performance arts.  Each play has a huge impact on rural communities in West Berkshire providing art to those not easily able to travel to the bigger regional hubs, bringing people together and increasing their sense of community. 

In particular, young people are encouraged to participate in and attend these plays.  The majority of the cast is under 25 and half the cast are usually of primary school age.  Everyone involved attends over thirty workshops in drama , dance and musical performance, all led by leading professionals. 
For the majority of the cast, this is the first such experience they have had and amongst other benefits for them are:
  • a new appreciation of the arts
  • confidence from performing to a paying audience
  • education in drama, dance and music
  • an experience which is not available to many, particularly in rural West Berkshire
  • an event that brings together the community of Boxford and surrounding villages, and by necessity has young and old, as well as disabled people working together in teams for a common cause.
