Half Moon's Solar Youth Theatre

Half Moon - we include, we inform, we inspire

Half Moon has a proven track record of delivering a wide range of high quality creative work, from professional touring productions to inclusive youth theatres and workshops from our base within a vibrant and diverse community. We aim to be as inclusive and accessible as possible, and engage with those who may often not have access to quality arts activity.

The impact of lockdown upon our full programme was immediate, with the loss of almost all of our earned income. We were about to open a new show for young audiences, we had three other shows on tour and another due to start rehearsing. These performances at our own venue and on tour were either re-scheduled or cancelled. We were immediately offered sensitivity and flexibility from our two core funders – Arts Council England and Tower Hamlets - without which our situation would have been critical.

Once appropriate safeguarding was in place, we began delivering creative sessions online for our Youth Theatres groups and worked with Tower Hamlets Children’s Centres to create digital resources for pre-school children and their families. We launched our Half Moon At Home digital offer of free access to filmed productions and an archive of spoken word monologues, as an alternative to live performance. We are currently preparing for three weeks of Summer Schools for 11 year olds transitioning to secondary school.

We are based in Tower Hamlets, which has the highest rate of children living in poverty in the UK, at 53%, almost 10% higher than the next local authority.
