About Us

Acorn Community Theatre Limited is the project management company of The Acorn Theatre Project.

ACT is a social enterprise company limited by guarantee and is also a registered charity. ACT comprises volunteer representatives from local arts organisations and interested groups in and around Worksop, and we include amongst our members many teachers and several arts professionals. As groups and individuals, we have worked together to create and develop The Acorn Theatre - a superb 200 seat all-age community theatre for entertainment, training and participation in the performing and visual arts in the heart of Worksop.

ACT strong feels that Worksop needs a town centre venue dedicated to the provision of performing and visual arts, giving groups and individuals in our local community far greater opportunities to create, access and participate in a wide range of arts events and activities in specially designed modern facilities. In addition to providing a facility for the participation of community groups and an interface with professional groups, The Acorn Theatre is also making a substantial contribution to Worksop town centre regeneration. This issue is one of Bassetlaw District Council’s current “Big Nine” objectives. We are working together with Bassetlaw District Council and other local organisations to ensure that The Acorn Theatre successfully meets the needs of our community, and that the future of performing and visual arts in Worksop is protected.

In developing and delivering exciting programmes of events and activities at the theatre, ACT are actively harnessing the proven wealth of arts expertise and experience of its member groups and individuals. In addition, it is seeking to build partnerships with other performing arts organisations from beyond Worksop & District and with Nottinghamshire County Arts to further widen opportunities at The Acorn Theatre. The combined input of local groups, external organisations and professional individuals, acts and companies is already resulting in an exciting and diverse range of opportunities for our community to engage in the arts in many ways and on many levels.
