Whatever your previous experience or interests, we offer, social, creative and enjoyable participation programmes for people over the age of 55. Our doors are always open, so please do get in touch if we can answer any questions you may have – we would love to welcome you here to Nottingham Playhouse.

Theatre is for everyone, and we will ensure our building and sessions are accessible to all participants – removing any barriers to participation.

Please tell us if there is anything further we can do to ensure our sessions are accessible for you.


We have courses in Creative Writing, Dance, Mixed Media Art and more, all in a relaxed and social setting.


Encore is a friendly theatre club for the over 50s who want to engage with theatre more closely.
