Welcome to Forest Forge Theatre Company

Forest Forge is one of the UK’s leading small-scale touring theatre companies.  It specialises in creating professional performances and Creative Learning projects that share people’s stories and experiences, with the ongoing aim of inspiring, engaging and transforming communities. The company is particularly interested in new writing.

Forest Forge is committed to making theatre accessible by touring work directly into people’s communities, to a variety of venues and working with a range of people through bespoke projects and workshops. These include regular workshops held at our custom-built theatre space in Ringwood: 

Youth Theatre 

Weekly term time workshops for young people aged 6-21.

Act Your Age!

A Monday morning drama group for anyone over the age of 55.

Bespoke Workshops

We can design and deliver workshops to your specification, for school, university or corporate settings. You can come to us or we will bring everything to you. 


Forest Forge makes theatre performances and workshops that sometimes challenge and are sometimes unexpected, but always inspiring.

The company is based in Ringwood on the edge of the New Forest and has been touring work for over 30 years.

Our purpose-built studio space is now available for hire to professionals and amateurs in the creative industries. See the link for the Theatre Centre above for more details.
