Theatre Deli

Theatre Deli empowers artists who want to change the world.

They have been a driving force within the arts for over 10 years, supporting emerging companies whose work sits outside traditional theatre. In 2018 the organisation supported over 11,000 artists, collaborated with more than 200 partner organisations, and commissioned 20 new pieces of work. Currently occupying two venues in London and Sheffield, they work to develop diverse audiences, expand the cultural offering, and provide safe environments for artists at every stage of their career to experiment, trial and showcase new work.

Theatre Deli's Offer for Children and Young People

We regularly programme theatre for children and families so please see our website for up to date show listings.

Messy Play - We also host regular Messy Play sessions. Little ones from 6 months up can enjoy getting messy with our famous painting wall, rice tea party and rainbow spaghetti. All you need to do is come along and mess around, and leave the cleaning up to us!

Teach Rex - We host regular performances from Teach Rex who uses life-like dinosaurs to perform their 40-minute show, teaching children about the anatomy and life of one the most mesmerizing creatures that have ever roamed our planet.  The show is teamed with effects, music and gives children and their families the chance to get up close and personal with these fantastic, realistic beasts. 

Future Makers - We’ve teamed up with our good friends Third Angel and Sheffield Hallam University to bring you exciting free theatre and film workshops run by industry professionals. If you’re interested in theatre and film and not really sure how you could get into the business, or if you just fancy having a go, this is for you. You don’t need to have any experience, only lots of enthusiasm!
