Children’s theatre company finds a new home in Ampthill
Bedfordshire based Full House Theatre this week moved into a new office with rehearsal space in Kings Arms Yard (off Church Street), Ampthill.
The company, established in 2001 by Creative Directors Ben Miles and Harriet Hardie, had been operating from offices on Church Street. When the opportunity arose to take on a new office space for their team of five, with adjoining rehearsal space, the Ampthill duo jumped at the chance.
Full House creates work with, for and by children, touring performances across Bedfordshire and nationwide, as well as programming children’s theatre festivals in Luton, Bedford and Houghton Regis, and working on performance projects with local schools and cultural organisations.
“It’s so wonderful to be able to bring our thriving theatre company into new premises in our home town. We are really proud of everything we have achieved in the past 17 years and are excited about what the future will bring from our new base”– Ben Miles and Harriet Hardie, Creative Directors.
Family theatre festival June Arts Jam, programmed by Ben and Harriet, returns to Bedford’s cultural venues this June for a third year with a range of quality hand-picked performances for children and young people:
- By the Light of the Moon at Bedford Central Library on Sunday 3rd June.
- The Owl and the Pussycat at The Place Theatre on Saturday 9th June.
- A Square World at The Higgins on Sunday 10th June.
- Is this a Dagger? The Story of Macbeth at Basement @ Bunyan on Saturday 16th June.
