Theatre Bath started life as a Twitter account in November 2011. Since then it has gone from strength to strength becoming an outlet and voice for theatre in Bath and the surrounding areas.
Theatre Bath has an open door ethos – we believe that all theatre is important at whatever level that may be. We are unique in the fact that we support all theatre whether that be amateur, student or professional and we are also regularly connected with audience members and people with a general interest in theatre in this area.
All of the work we do is completely led by suggestions from the people we engage with via our social media feeds. They are hugely important and we would go as far as to say that they are actually members of the team and of the Theatre Bath family. We wouldn’t exist without them.
