Theatre Factory is a programme of Drama and Arts activities for young people in the Furness Peninsula, run by The Ashton Group.


All the projects are FREE and there are lots of different ways to get involved, to have fun, make new friends and improve your confidence through drama.


If you'd like to get involved, have a look at our project pages. If you'd like to ask a question about any of our projects use our contact page.
