Extended Arts

Our extended arts programme collaborates with rural touring arts organisations to bring external theatre companies, dance, film, music and art to Gillingham School at an affordable price. Our events are open to the public giving the community the opportunity to see, participate and work with both national and international industry professionals. In recent years we have hosted shows for Cirque du Platzak, Panta Rei Danseteater, Theatre Alibi, Miracle Theatre, Living Spit and many more.

We are fortunate that many of the visiting performers are keen to hold workshops for the students whilst companies are in the area, giving the students first-hand experience of the creative arts from both the performance and technical perspective.

Additionally, the Extended Arts team curates shows in the Gallery for visual artists. Ellen Tovey, Ruth Dresman and John Maine RA have all been artist in residence during the last few years.
