Who we are:

Hackney Shed is a performing arts group for young people that believes every member of the group has something special to offer to the development of the art, and the development of the group.

What we do:

Hackney Shed works to provide an exciting, vibrant, creative and accepting place for children and young people to come together, share ideas and produce exciting theatre.

Accessible and Inclusive

Hackney Shed offers an accessible and inclusive place where children and young people can become valuable members of the company, exploring their creativity and working inclusively with their peers. Children and young people who take part attend both special and mainstream education in the borough.

Everything Hackney Shed do is accessible on many levels to ensure that everyone is able to take part.

 Hackney Shed groups for three age ranges:

  • Children’s Theatre - for ages 7 – 11 years
  • Youth Theatre – for ages 11 – 16
  • Young Company for 16 – 19 year olds


Each of the three groups works at its own pace and everyone is encouraged to develop their own ideas within the framework developed by practitioners.

Every year groups work towards either a joint or separate performances.
