Workie Ticket Workshops
Workie Ticket has a commitment to work within the North East community. We believe the best way to do this is to make our theatre accessible, affordable and relevant. We also provide a wellbeing programme that supports the groups we work with. We are passionate about delivering these workshops that are very closely connected to the themes of our plays. Workie Ticket believe in theatre for social change and making a difference in the communities we work in.

In 2019, we began delivering across the North East to various communities working in South Shields with Tyne and Wear Museums and Archives as part of their Festival of Women programme and working with Just Fair UK delivering a workshop around human rights.
We have delivered a number of successful sessions in Newcastle, South Tyneside and North Tyneside; working alongside mental health, human rights and Women's charities such as Newcastle Women’s Aid, WHIST and the Bright Futures Young Women’s Project. Our Workie Ticket Wellbeing Workshops include:
