The Yard Theatre is at the centre of its community.
We believe that a theatre should reflect its local area and be in conversation with the people who live and work nearby. Yard Local is our programme for neighbours, for young people and for really good ideas. We manage two community centres: Hub67, in the heart of Hackney Wick, and The Hall in E20. From these spaces we run creative projects for young people aged 4-19 years and offer regular activities and resources for local people, as well as working closely with local schools.
Following government advice, our spaces are currently closed, but there’s still lots going on. We’re coordinating support for vulnerable local residents, delivering meals, coordinating food shops, prescription delivery and gas/electric top ups, as well as coordinating a network of local partners in E20 and Hackney Wick to keep supporting our community and responding to this crisis.
If you would be interested in volunteering or joining these conversations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re doing some spring cleaning of our Local pages right now while our spaces are closed, but if you have questions about our local programme please do email us.
