Hello and Welcome to the new website of the Community Theatre Group.

We are a community group and we develop projects which promote creative writing and drama to primary school pupils and adults in Belle Isle.

To get involved why not pop along to one of our monthly meetings in the GATE Community Resource Centre



Community Theatre Group
We are a community group based in Belle Isle, South Leeds whose mission is to promote the arts, namely creative writing and drama, and to promote community cohesion.

We believe that creative writing and drama can help raise self-esteem and build confidence and that activities which challenge and develop skills in team working, communication, decision making and presenting can have strong benefits which last way beyond a final performance or reading. We want to support activities which work to improve literacy levels among KS2 pupils and adults in Belle Isle. Working in partnership with professional theatre makers, writers and actors we want to create projects which span a range of ages, from primary school children to adults, helping to inspire resilience, creativity and self confidence in the people who take part in our activities.

Our Projects planned for 2017 include Pen to Paper, Belle Isle 500 short story competition and Beyond Theatre. Watch this space for more details…
