The Mercury Theatre’s Learning and Participation team delivers high quality, ambitious and innovative opportunities that open up the theatre to all communities locally and regionally.
We place our activities at the heart of the organisation; enlivening the building, enriching experiences, engaging new and developing existing audiences.
Whether you’re aged 2 or 102 years old we have something just right for you.
Last year, through our activities, Learning and Participation worked with 20,221 people. That’s enough to fill the main auditorium 45 times!
If you have any questions about the events or activities in the Get Involved pages, please contact Learning and Participation on 01206 245 503 or email@example.com.
