About

We launched Spinning Wheel Theatre in 2011, and we’ve always been committed to touring across East Anglia visiting village and town halls, arts centres and theatres with our professional productions.

Alongside our touring work, we run education and engagement projects with young people and community groups. With each project we create, we work with a talented group of collaborators including actors, creatives, facilitators, craftspeople and industry mentors.

We also work in partnership with wonderful local ambassadors who help us to share our work with audiences across the region.

We are an associate company of the Mercury Theatre in Colchester.
