Project Description

From 2007-2012 ArtReach programmed all professional visiting work at the Riverhead Theatre, Louth, Lincolnshire, focusing on quality children’s theatre, contemporary drama, comedy and music.

The Riverhead Theatre (  is regularly funded by Arts Council England to bring a range of contemporary performance to rural Lincolnshire. ArtReach has helped the theatre develop a cohesive programme of regular children’s and family shows, alongside challenging contemporary drama and dance and a complementary programme of comedy, music and celebrity appearances. The work has also included securing funding and programming residency activity with companies such as CandoCo Dance Company, Albert and Friends, Shifting Sands Theatre and the Alpana Sengupta Dance Company.
