Catherine Wheels and the environment

Contact Us / News

Catherine Wheels is a theatre company which creates professional productions for an audience of children and young people. We create hundreds of performances a year, toured in UK and internationally, including regular tours to Europe, North America and Australasia.
We operate from two buildings; an office at the Brunton, and an industrial unit which houses a workshop and rehearsal space. We have no performance space.
The core staff is small but we are joined regularly by associate freelancers for design, direction, music and production.
