We supported 12 artist residencies and provided 319 subsidised theatre tickets and hot lunches for socially isolated people aged 75+. As well as presenting an impactful and broad creative programme, encouraging artistic innovation and supporting artist development, we also engaged with people of all ages through our extensive participation programme. 12,121 children and young people took part in creative learning and performance opportunities delivered by artsdepot and its partners over the year.

Our family-friendly offer
We want the whole family to enjoy their trip to artsdepot. We have a soft play area created especially for our littlest visitors, featuring a book corner, a chalkboard wall and space grownups to relax.Baby changing facilities are available in unisex toilets on levels 2, 3 and 4. Our building has step-free access throughout, making it fully accessible for buggies. During performances we have a buggy park outside the auditorium. This is monitored by a steward but it's best to take any valuables in with you. Our cafe offers a range of tasty and nutritious food including Ella's Kitchen organic baby meals for little ones.
Age guidelines are listed for all shows, where applicable. For most family performances, children under 18 months are considered 'babes in arms'. They don't need a ticket and are not allocated as seat as they can sit on the lap of their parent or guardian. They may be asked to leave if they become distressed and cause disruption to performers or other audience members. You are welcome to re-enter the auditorium once they have settled. During family shows children's lunchboxes are available for £4. There are high chairs available in the cafe and we are happy to heat up baby milk during cafe opening hours.
We are committed to making sure everyone can enjoy our facilities. If you'd like to discuss any access requirements before you visit, please call our Box Office team on 020 8369 5454. And if you need any assistance while you're here, just ask a member of staff, we're happy to help. More information can be found here: https://www.artsdepot.co.uk/accessibility
