    Our Organisation:
    Looping the Loop CIC was set up in 2013 with a mission to bring theatre and live performance to anyone in Thanet that wanted to engage. We believe in a playful world full of magic and wonder. We believe that play connects us to others and the world around us, adds joy to life, relieves stress and supercharges learning.


    We believe in treating every member of our audience as a VIP regardless of race, gender, age, wealth or education.

    Looping the Loop is a founding member of the Collaborative Touring Network (CTN) - a national network of producers, established in 2013 by Battersea Arts Centre in London, with a goal of bringing world-class entertainment and participation opportunities to communities living in areas of cultural deprivation.

    In 2015 The Warwick Commission stated that the wealthiest, best educated, least ethnically diverse 8% of the population are the main producers and consumers of publicly subsidised theatre. We are interested in reaching the other 92%.
