The Lantern Team

Dedicated to the development and delivery of new talent, here at Lantern Theatre Liverpool. We are committed to bringing fresh ideas to our stage and to your attention.

Lantern Theatre Liverpool is an intimate, family run venue, nestled in the heart of Liverpool’s creative playground – The Baltic Triangle. A converted warehouse on the edge of Liverpool One, Lantern Theatre Liverpool emanates a bohemian contemporaneity that makes it the perfect location for unique, ground-breaking theatre.

Founded in 2009 by ‘tiny Giants Productions’, the theatre changed hands in September 2011 when , Margaret and Siobhan , stepped in to take the reins. With a vision centred upon the support of local artists – especially those looking for their first professional platform – a new era for Lantern Theatre Liverpool began.

Since then we have received fantastic feedback from both artists and public alike and are quickly becoming an established member of the Liverpool theatre scene. In partnership with Lantern Theatre Liverpool, in-house technician Peter Mitchelson, launched Shiny New Theatre Festival in July 2012, showcasing pre Edinburgh Fringe performances. Resident theatre company, New Leaf Theatre Ensemble, offer weekly acting training for adults of all ages and ability and we are currently developing a young writers programme. Watch this space
