Chol Theatre & Arts Organisation

Chol use drama and theatre to co-create and share children and young people's stories. We work in everyday local spaces so you will often find us in libraries, schools, community centres, parks and town centres. We aim to co-create incredible experiences with children and young people to make them feel powerful and connected.

Although we work across Yorkshire (and sometimes in other places in the wider world) we always start work in our home communities of Kirklees and Sheffield.

"I really enjoyed today. We met strangers and now we have become friends. I really enjoyed sharing opinions and stories" young participant, Feb 2020
