THE PLACE FOR PERFORMING ARTS

The Garage is a centre for performing arts located in Norwich which supports the creative journeys of participants, audiences and artists. It is managed by The Garage Trust, a registered charity and limited liability company.

The venue is an important creative hub for the communities of Norfolk and beyond, working with local and national partners to provide high quality programming, participation, education and training for all ages. It is a place for everyone but has a particular focus on young people from all backgrounds.

The year round programme includes open access performing arts classes, projects, live performances and support for the development of new creative work. Local delivery is complimented by national partnerships and delivery of strategic initiatives which develop the sector. Each year its team produce a wide range of performing arts events for partners, stakeholders and commissioners. 

The charity has a strong emphasis on engaging those with least access to the arts, particularly young people. The Creative Learning team works with funders, local authorities, schools, statutory agencies and referral partners to deliver year-round access, inclusion and development initiatives based both at The Garage and beyond.

In addition to the work delivered by the trust, the facilities are hired by community, education and arts groups in order for them to deliver their own activities.
