Mentoring opportunity for young and emerging theatre ensembles


Here at Tangled Feet we know what it’s like to start a theatre company from scratch.  The challenges there are to overcome, the difficulties in sustaining momentum and the competition for opportunities and funding.  Over the last four years Tangled Feet have supported nine emerging theatre ensembles to structure themselves, support their development and apply for funding alongside further support for the intricacies of collaborative working.


“The mentorship we received from TF was pivotal to HighRise's journey. TF have given us the skills and confidence to form and flourish as a company. In a time when artists are fighting harder and harder to get acknowledged, TF armed us with the necessary confidence to begin facing the industry. ”

- Dominic


With the support of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, we are very happy to be able to offer a year long mentoring programme for four emerging theatre ensembles.  This is the fourth year of running this programme which grew out of the desire to support emerging ensembles in their formative years.  This is not only an opportunity to work with Tangled Feet but also work alongside three other fellow emerging theatre companies.


The programme will consist of four weekend workshops spread out over the year as well as on going mentoring and will take place in London and Luton.


The mentoring scheme will cover:

  •       Group dynamics and staying focused
  •         Flexible planning and structures
  •         Pitching, selling and touring your work
  •         Working with young people
  •         Fundraising and business planning
  •         Marketing and communications
  •         Shared practice and games


It will also provide time and space for you to build and plan together as a company with support and guidance from our core team.

Alongside the weekend intensive workshops you will have a dedicated mentor from within the Tangled Feet ensemble to talk to throughout the year.  The first workshop will be in March 2018.



If you are interested in joining the scheme download the application form below and send it completed to General Manager Aly Jones at


The application closing date is 6pm Tuesday 9th January 2018 and we will be in contact by 1st February 2018.

It's official: Tangled Feet is Fantastic for Families!

By Kat Joyce   We are very honoured to have been recognised with a prize for Best Family-Friendly Workplace Initiative' by the Fantastic for Families campaign.   Over the years the number of people in the ensemble with kids has grown to the point that there are now more children than adults in the TF tribe. So really, we had to adapt our working lives or we would just not have been able to carry on making work. The upshot of that is that, motivated by our long-standing commitments to working together, we've found loads of creative ways to accommodate people's parenting status.   The theatre industry can be horribly unfriendly towards parents and parents-to-be. I know of women who work at major buildings who privately report a culture where taking time out for motherhood marks you clearly as someone with no desire to succeed. I know actors who have been dropped by their agents during maternity leave because 'it doesn't seem like you want to return to work after your baby'. Others who've had to desperately scrabble around for childcare when production schedules are changed at the last minute. In an industry where there are always more creatives than there are jobs, and people often feel very precarious and disposable, many try to behave as if they don't have children, hiding their families out of sight. This is a real shame, as it means that talent and experience haemorrhage out of our industry as people (mainly women) find family lives incompatible with continuing to work.
