Half Moon is a local organisation with a national remit. Working from our base in Limehouse, East London, we give young people from birth to 18 (25 for disabled young people) an opportunity to experience the best in young people’s theatre, both as a participant and as an audience member.
Our activity includes a season of professional plays for young and family audiences, including teenagers, national touring productions and an extensive creative learning programme, including eight youth theatres.
Half Moon’s expertise is in supporting artists and young people at every stage of their creative development, providing a gateway to engagement, offering pathways for progression and experimentation and then disseminating outcomes within the wider cultural sector, through performances, touring productions, open dialogue and continuing professional development.
Half Moon is a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and receives regular funding from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, as well as many other supporters.
Our Fun Palaces FREE Family Fun Day returns for a seventh year as part of the Great Big Green Week to tackle climate change and protect nature.
Join us from 10am to 4pm as we create a unique pop-up event throughout our building and garden.
Throughout the day we’ll be raising awareness of environmental issues through a series of fun community activities throughout our building and garden, including craft, art, storytelling, music and movement workshops. Plus, we’ll have tea, cake and a few surprises along the way. Dip into one or two events or stay for the entire day.
All events are free. Refreshments are available to buy throughout the day.
