Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that everyone should treated equally and is free to bring their whole self to our theatre.

Our theatre serves an area that is geographically, culturally and socially isolated and therefore the theatre has a particularly important role to play in championing diverse voices and experiences through the work we create and present, through our workforce and through our wider engagement and influence within the county of Cumbria
and beyond.

We are committed to making our theatre a more inclusive and relevant organisation and believe this is to be achieved by listening and learning from our local communities.

We have set objectives in our business plan to monitor progress, have established an Inclusivity and Relevance working group, and are working with pioneering artists and companies that champion inclusivity to make great theatre, involve underserved communities, develop talent and advocate for change.

We commit to treating all job applications fairly, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

If you’re applying for a role, we’ll ask you to complete an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form which gathers personal information about you and helps us to monitor our recruitment and employment activities for effectiveness against our commitments and policies.

We’ll remove the completed form from your application before it’s sent for review by the recruiting manager and we’ll only use the information for statistical monitoring purposes.
