Taking Part

Come and get connected!

Our theatre takes its name from the Roman messenger god, Mercury. It was his task to connect the people with the gods, and so, in keeping with our name, connection has become one of our main themes.

We believe in the power of creativity to connect the amazing communities that surround us.

Our goal is to boost creativity in the East of England by providing the people in our region with everyday opportunities to be artistic and innovative.

This is our programme of activities for young people, older people, local communities, schools and artists designed to celebrate creative potential and connect you with other people from all different backgrounds.

There’s something for everyone, so come and get involved!
