Spinning Wheel

Spinning Wheel Theatre was launched in 2011 with the commitment to touring across East Anglia, visiting town and village halls, arts centres, theatres, libraries and community hubs with our professional productions.

Alongside our touring work, we run education and engagement projects with young people and community groups. With each project we create, we work with a talented group of collaborators, including actors, creatives, facilitators, craftspeople and industry mentors.

We also work in partnership with wonderful local ambassadors who help us to share our work across the region.

From 2017-2018 we were an associate company of the Mercury Theatre in Colchester, and in 2021 we are delighted to become the company in residence at the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft.
