GL4: About


Strike A Light (Gloucester) attended a meeting in our local community, Matson, where Sarah and Naomi were also attending. We were asked if we could transform the sports hall into a theatre to bring two shows based around council estates to life.


The first show was a smashing success and sold out instantly. From then, we continued to work with Strike A Light to pull together high quality shows for the whole community to enjoy, which are affordable and accessible to all. We then branched out on our own to establish GL4 into a community interest company.

We want to break down the barriers that people feel when they think of visiting the theatre. We believe that the arts and creativity should be easily accessible for all.

As we are a non venue based organisation, we transform community spaces into theatre spaces. By doing this, we are able to create a comfortable environment where our community feels safe.


We proudly work in partnership with organisations based in and around Matson, as well as organisations based in the city centre of Gloucester.
