About Thatre31

‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’ – Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child

Inspired by the idea that cultural and artistic activities are a human right for all children and young people, Theatre31 aims to empower 2000 children and young people across Medway and Sheppey to commission, co-create and engage in performing arts activities by June 2022.

Theatre31 is funded by Arts Council England and delivered in partnership with Medway Council, the Brook Theatre, the Medway and Sheppey Local Cultural Education Partnerships and Ideas Test, and supported by Kent County Council and ROH Bridge.
