Trustees and Charity Information
Tangled Feet aims to increase access to, and participation in high-quality, industry leading theatre. A multi-award winning theatre ensemble, we are constantly developing innovative and exciting new work, building new relationships, identifying potential partners and embracing new opportunities to challenge the theatrical status-quo. We endeavour to make unique opportunities for young people to engage with our work, and aim to share our work with people that rarely, if ever visit or engage with the theatre.
