Gazebo Theatre Company

Gazebo has been providing a diverse range of innovative, powerful theatre and arts programmes for 34 years.

The company seeks to find and develop new ways to engage with and explore important issues and subject areas.

Programmes include original professional theatre, short films, workshops, community arts and young people’s participatory theatre projects.


Gazebo also work in partnership with Wolverhampton City Council to manage Bilston Town Hall, enabling a range of arts, heritage and community activities to take place there, including site specific theatre productions.

The company believe the secret of their success in the Black Country is their ability to respond to local need and demand and our ongoing commitment to working in partnership with others - whether this be working together on the development of a project, contributing to local networks or supporting local artists, groups and organisations.

Gazebo is committed to equality of access to the arts, promoting community cohesion at all levels, and reflecting the cultural landscape of the Black Country and the diversity of the people that reside, visit or work there.
