TramShed is an Inclusive Theatre Company and charity based in Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde. We offer Inclusive performing arts to all children, young people and adults, no matter what their background, experiences or needs. We offer a safe and stimulating theatre environment which allows each individual to learn new skills, build confidences and showcase their talents. No one is excluded at TramShed, only celebrated.
As a registered charity, we rely heavily on donations to enable our Inclusive work to continue. If you would like to make a donation please click HERE
TramShed run weekly Inclusive performing arts workshops at Woodlands school in Blackpool. The workshops unite people from all areas of our community. We stage two Inclusive performances at Blackpool Sixth Form Theatre every year. All material is written in house and the membership base devise ideas to create the material used.
Work in the community is fundamental to TramShed as it allows us to access many people who have previously been excluded from the performing arts through no reason of their own. TramShed offer an extensive Outreach programme to all schools throughout the North West. We also deliver the Bronze and Silver Arts Award and are an accredited Arts Award Centre.
“Being patron of ‘TramShed’ means a lot to me, I feel proud and privileged to be a part of this fabulous charity. Having been involved in show business from an early age, I know the joy performing brings and how wonderful it is to receive applause for something that you love doing. Zac and his team at ‘TramShed’ do an amazing job and their passion for what they do should be so admired. The importance of inclusive theatre means that anyone can have a chance to follow their dreams. They learn to work as a team, helping each other on and off stage, and then realising the rewards their hard work achieves. (i.e. the productions twice yearly of wonderful musical theatre.) It’s not only great for the children and young adults that take part, it’s great for our local communities, providing enjoyment and giving our local young people an avenue for socialising, making new friends, and indeed becoming part of this wonderful group that is ‘TramShed Theatre Company”. Linda Nolan – TramShed Patron
“TramShed are a jewel of the Fylde Coast’s artistic treasures, and all the more refreshing since they are an inclusive theatre. To see everyone on stage participating and clearly thriving on the experience was inspirational. They tackle issues that can often be hard to talk about, and empower not just the participants but the audience who clearly engage with the themes. The way in which some regulars have developed over the years as performers is there for all to see”.
