We are Barbican Theatre: we get excited about people creating and enjoying theatre, dance and live entertainment.
Together with the B-Bar, Barbican Theatre offers a diverse programme of theatre, dance, comedy, live music and spoken word. From hilarious Christmas performances for the whole family (as well as just for the adults), to chilled out soul and jazz music in the relaxed atmosphere of the B-Bar, this vibrant little venue really does have something for everyone.
As well as putting on high quality performances for the public to enjoy, Barbican Theatre is also a regional centre of excellence for young, new and emerging theatre and dance artists. Their Performance Training programme enables 12-25s to learn dance and theatre skills, whilst residency workshops give practitioners the opportunity to learn from nationally touring artists.
They are commited to developing talent on and off the stage and work with emerging artists in theatre, dance, production and technican, directing, writing, choreograph, producing and many other areas of performing arts. But there’s more to this waterside theatre than meets the eye. For 39 years, they have also been empowering schools and local communities through the arts, raising awareness of important social issues.
Through this unique way of working, they aim to promote a fairer, more equal city where everyone is valued and respected. Barbican Theatre also manage performances at the larger 340 seat Plymouth Athenaeum Theatre' located in Plymouth's city centre.
