We are very fortunate that any money we currently receive as donations will be matched by the Arts Council of England. This means that magically every £1 you give will become £2!

We are a charity that works for, by and with young people specialising in theatre and new writing. 


At Action Transport Theatre we don’t believe children are the future. We know they are the now, the present. Their individual ideas and imaginations are relevant today and inspire and inform everything we do. We work with children and young people as creative collaborators, to make professional and aspirational theatre which we share locally, regionally, nationally and internationally from our home in Ellesmere Port. 

All the activities we provide for local young people are free and it is our ambition to enable more young people to access life changing arts activity. We rely on supporters and funders to continue to do what we do. Your donation will go directly to fund the fantastic work we do, from developing new productions to supporting education, writing and performance projects with young people and hosting some of the regions best theatre companies at Whitby Hall Studio Theatre. This will help us to continue to make a positive impact on more young people's lives in the years to come.

Set in the heart of the beautiful, Green Flag-awarded Whitby Park, and home to a thriving young people’s theatre company, locally-listed Whitby Hall has been described as ‘a hidden gem’.  Building on the regeneration of Ellesmere Port, our vision is that by 2018 this locally-listed Victorian mansion will be transformed into an inspiring, fit-for-purpose Cultural Hub and Arts Centre for local young people and their families.
