Who we are

Attic is an arts organisation based in Mitcham, South London. Our mission is to make excellent live theatre and cultural experiences accessible to all in the borough Merton and across the UK from our little office above Mitcham Library.

We do two things:

  • Commission and produce new theatre. We work with leading artists and a variety of partners to make relevant and high quality work which tours to lots of different locations. You’re as likely to see us in a library or park as a theatre.
  • Develop and deliver a vibrant and varied participatory programme, centred in our borough of Merton. We focus on working with young people and older people and run weekly workshops as well as one off summer schools and courses with a whole host of incredible partners including local schools, Shine Mitcham, Merton Young Carers and Jigsaw 4U.

We are a registered charity and are grateful for the ongoing support of Merton Council, Marcus Beale Architects and project funding from Arts Council England, Cockayne, The Jack Petchey Foundation, The Wimbledon Foundation and the London Community Fund amongst others.
