The Stage Awards recently introduced a brand new honour: 'The Judges' Award', reserved for theatres that have achieved significant milestones or made exceptional contributions to the arts and theatre. And guess what? Chickenshed has been chosen as the first recipient of this award!
We were also very lucky to have our wonderful Space Between Us Programme shortlisted for the hugely prestigious Community Project of the Year Award by The Stage.
50 Years of Excellence
A moment of wonder as the judges celebrated ‘50 Years of Excellence’ at Chickenshed. 50 years of shaking things up and creating wonder from chaos. 50 years of being a place for absolutely everyone.
This is a momentous occasion for us, a recognition of five decades of dedication to inclusive performance and community engagement. We couldn't be prouder of this achievement and it's all thanks to every one of you who has been a part of our journey. This award showcases just how many lives we transform and transform us.
We’re over the moon with this incredible recognition. THANK YOU for shaking up our world with joy.
