New Vic Education - Creative activities for adults, children, young people & families

Who We Are

New Vic Education is part of the New Vic Theatre. We are based in Newcastle under Lyme and work throughout Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent to provide access to creative activities for adults, children, families and young people. We work in partnership with schools and community organisations to provide opportunities that support well-being and help people to connect with each other, in particular people who may be experiencing isolation or may benefit from additional support to take part. We also offer opportunities to volunteer on our projects and provide Professional Development for colleagues working within the community who wish to incorporate creative approaches into their practice.

What We Do
