Art Town

Art Town is run by Full House Theatre Company, and funded by the Trust through The Health Lottery South East

“Often, we have kids come to us saying that they don’t feel that they fit in at school, but when they come to Art Town, it really is a level playing field. There’s no hierarchy, it really is accessible; it really is inclusive. Kids come there, they make friends, they develop friendships.”

In 2014, People’s Health Trust funded the setup of Art Town, which provides weekly sessions that give children and young people who live in Houghton Regis the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of creative activities and art forms, as well as regular performances, arts events, and creative half-term sessions.

This case study was carried out by Ecorys, who are conducting an independent evaluation of People's Health Trust's Active Communities programme. The case study formed part of this evaluation process.
