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.
