We include. We inform. We inspire.
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.Discover more about who we are Explore What’s On in our Limehouse theatre Gallery @ Half Moon
Our Creative Learning programmes include curriculum-focused activity, after-school and out-of-school workshops and initiatives to support young people’s personal and social development.
Half Moon runs eight Youth Theatre groups for 5 – 18 year-olds in East London interested in theatre and drama.
At Half Moon, we have a wide range of live shows and virtual performances on throughout the year which are available for schools bookings. These include performances that take place at our theatre but also shows teachers can book to come into school.
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.Find out more about the project
