Meet our members: About Face Theatre
About Face Theatre is a founding member of the Leominster Cultural Consortium and one of a small number of professional UK theatre companies working with actors with learning disabilities. Established in 1995, this dynamic theatre company has a strong reputation for delivering high quality theatre to festivals, community halls and other venues and is based in Church Street in the heart of Leominster, Herefordshire.
About Face Theatre is part of the ECHO charity and provides a wide range of opportunities for people with learning disabilities to grow in confidence through performance-based skills and giving a platform to raise social consciousness about this marginalised, often excluded sector of society. The company runs a range of different activities and sessions five days a week, all at the Forbury Workshop, Leominster, including the Drama for All project, Theatre Skills and Stagecraft groups as well as the Performance Company itself.
ECHO is based in Herefordshire, providing opportunities to make a real difference to the lives of disabled people, supporting them to be valued members of their community. (Reg. charity no: 1096449. Company no: 4475254). About Face Theatre is excited to be part of the Leominster Cultural Consortium, supporting the local community to engage in the arts and culture with pride in our town.
