The Hub: Theatre 2

Learn new strategies and approaches for the home and classroom in The Hub: Theatre 2.

Hub 2

Hear presentations on subjects such as enabling learners to prepare for adulthood and employment; transition into adult services; autism and dyscalculia; how to improve learning ability in children with ASD; and tackling sensory and motor challenges.

Listening audience

The Hub: Theatre 2 has a seating capacity of 80 and sound is relayed to the audience through wireless headsets to reduce noise levels in the hall.

Places are offered on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive as early as possible before the session you wish to attend to save disappointment.

We are currently finalising this year’s theatre programme. The full schedule will appear here next month. In the meantime, if you haven’t visited before, you can view last year’s programme below to gain a good impression of what the show has to offer.
