The next Foundation seminar will be on 13 November. Then and Now… When acta started in 1985, it was Thatcher’s Britain. Today, acta’s work is thriving under another Conservative government. How much of acta’s work has been a political response to the inequalities of our society, theatre and the arts? Is acta a political organisation?
The next seminar will take place on Friday 8 May – Rules of Engagement?
Monday 6 October, 7pm acta centre
All welcome to join us for this evening of presentations and conversations on the plans to develop and extend the acta centre next year.
acta’s next touring community theatre show previews at the actacentre in March, before touring to Bristol neighbourhoods in June. This WWI centenary show tells a remarkable local story. Box office for all performances is now open, with tickets just £3.
acta announces plans to extend the acta centre towards Palmerston Street, to make a multi-purpose space available for community events, and as a second rehearsal & performance space. It will also add a bar/lounge area to the foyer, improving the facilities for our theatre audiences, and create dressing room space & cast toilets in a new backstage area.
