TramShed is an Inclusive Theatre Company within Blackpool, Wyre and the Fylde.
Our Youth Theatre and Adult Company workshops launched in May 2007, our
Children’s Theatre in September 2007 and our Mini Children’s Theatre in September 2012. TramShed is a registered charity and therefore we are continually working to secure funding and donations in order for our inspirational style of workshops to continue.
In the past we have been lucky enough to receive funding from Children in Need, Arts Council England, The Health Lottery, The Foyle Foundation, Auto Trader Community Funding, Blackpool Coastal Housing – Tenant’s Project Fund, Aiming High for Disabled Children, Blackpool Council, Blackpool Youth Opportunities Fund, The Network Learning Fund, Awards for All, The Golsoncotte Foundation, Talk Sport Radio Wave, Change for Charity, Blackpool Rotary Club, Barclays Bank, The Co-op Foundation, The Co-op and Lloyds TSB. Without the kind support of these businesses and organisations TramShed would not have been able to continue.
TramShed performed ‘Dreamcatcher’ in July 2008, which was our first original musical theatre production. Each performance was a sell out and the production showcased our amazing members and allowed people to see how much of an impact inclusive theatre can have on our community. Since this amazing project we have staged a further fourteen original productions and the company goes from strength to strength.
Established by Chickenshed in 2005, TramShed is part of an ever-growing number of
independent ‘Sheds’ nationwide, working by the Chickenshed inclusive creative method.
Charlotte Bull, Head of Children’s Theatre at Chickenshed sent this message:
‘Working with the TramShed staff and members has been an absolute privilege for all
of us here at Chickenshed. Their enthusiasm for creating a place which is not only
exciting and creative but a place where anyone and everyone is welcome has been
overwhelming. The staff and members of TramShed have been an absolute joy to work with and they have embraced inclusive theatre with open arms.’
