"CTC truly creates access for all regardless of background"

Welcome to

Cherwell Theatre Company

Since 2004 we've created an environment where young people can be themselves, make new friends and feel valued. We work  collaboratively to bring their unique qualities and aspirations to life through inclusive community theatre, often in unusual spaces. Our patron is Sir Trevor Nunn.

We operate from our headquarters at Banbury College alongside our longstanding champion and partner, Activate Learning who continue to support our work with young people.
