We include. We inform. We inspire.

Half Moon is based in Limehouse, East London. We produce and present professional theatre for children at our Limehouse venue, as well as touring work nationally.

We also have an extensive Creative Learning programme, giving children and young people from birth to 18 (or 25 for disabled young people) an opportunity to participate in a variety of drama and theatre activities in schools, community settings and Half Moon.

We are proud to offer high quality theatre and an affordable experience. With Youth Theatre sessions from £3 and all tickets only £7, we offer excellent value and some of the cheapest London Theatre tickets.

1990 | 2020 Youth Theatre Showcase

In March 2020, Half Moon celebrated its 30th birthday as a young people’s theatre. Our planned celebrations – including a festival of new Youth Theatre shows and a photography exhibition – were quickly postponed when COVID-19 forced the country into a national lockdown.

Over a year later, in July 2021, we are proud that we were able to mark our 30th birthday appropriately with a virtual showcase of digital content that celebrates not only the history of Half Moon as a young people’s theatre, but also the resilience and creativity of our young people.
