Access Theatre

Access Theatre offers access to the performing arts for individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity – adults with learning disabilities and a range of physical and sensory impairments. They support the members to fully participate in all activities, including:

  • Decision making
  • Planning projects
  • Appointing practitioners
  • Fundraising

The Ruth Burden Community Trust awarded Access Theatre with £1,000 towards their performances at Launceston Town Hall.

Sarah Pym, co-ordinator commented “Without the help, we would not have been able to fulfil the potential of these talented individuals and raise the awareness of their disabilities. Having to learn lines and remember dance and movement sequences greatly increased the well-being of the members through a strong sense of achievement and satisfaction”.
