We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our Grants for the Arts application. HOORAH! We will receive funding from The Arts Council of England to explore and develop Unanima Theatre’s place within the arts sector.
We are also excited to share with you our new home. Unanima Theatre will now be Artists in Residence at The Old Library Arts Venue and Media Centre in Mansfield, the home of the formidable County Youth Arts who have been instrumental in Unanima’s inception and continuing success.
A new partnership with Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Create Theatre is also an exciting development and we hope to work with VWNC’s Performing Arts Graduates and current students as Early Career Artists.
Alongside organisational development, Unanima Theatre will invite new participants to research, develop, devise and present a brand new piece of theatre to be performed at various venues in Nottinghamshire and beyond.

DONATE TO OUR CROWD FUND
We will be launching a crowd fund very soon. If you would like to donate a pound or two, you would be making an amazing contribution to an innovative, inclusive theatre company.
If you are rich, you are welcome to donate as much as you like.
We are almost at the ‘pressing send and holding our breath with fingers and toes crossed,’ stage of our funding application.
Although we have been quiet recently, our Creative Producer – Tracy and Creative Director – Jayne, have been planning, prepping, attending training, developing and fundraising…lots of things with ‘ings’, including tweeting (on which we have just gathered our 500th follow = @hamletinlove).
So thank you for your patience. Please keep in touch and look out for some exciting Unanima news in the next few weeks.
A fantastic reminder of a wonderful summer.

Mis-quoted and slightly disgruntled!
If you read the article in yesterday’s Nottingham Evening Post (page 7 of Monday 24th September issue) we would like you to know that Jayne Lewis, our Creative Director, was mis-quoted. We were pleased to have an article in such a well known paper and the photograph looks great but it wasn’t the story we agreed to. Here is the actual press release which Jayne wrote;
Our family friendly comedy performance of Horace went down a storm on Wednesday, at the very first WEYA Festival in Nottingham.
It rained…then it poured, but the audience still roared with laughter!
