Shoebox Theatre CIO is a registered charity (charity number 1161815). We work alongside Wrong Shoes Theatre Company to ensure that there are opportunities for everyone in the community to access quality arts and arts education. 

We aim to support emerging theatre makers within the first stages of their career, regardless of age, provide access to training for members of the community who might often be excluded and work collaboratively to encourage greater diversity in both the artistic ecology and audiences within Swindon and the surrounding areas.

As a charity we aim:


1. To promote the arts for the public benefit in particular but not exclusively by:


(A) Providing performance opportunities, diversity in and access to contemporary theatre (and new works of theatre) in Wiltshire and surrounding counties;


(B) Promoting collaboration within the arts in particular but not exclusively by encouraging cross arts-form, inter-cultural and cross generational working practices.


2. To advance the education of the public in the arts in particular but not exclusively by providing accessible and affordable arts education opportunities for all, for the public benefit in Wiltshire and surrounding counties.
