Based in Ringwood in the heart of the New Forest, Forest Forge specialises in creating professional performances for our studio-theatre and on tour, supporting emerging artists and delivering Creative Learning projects with the ongoing aim of inspiring, engaging and transforming communities.
Our flexible studio-theatre space, located in Ringwood, is ideal for artists, community groups and local organisations to create work, rehearse, perform or host bespoke events or business meetings.
There’s something for everyone at Forest Forge, from our vibrant Youth Theatre and popular adult drama group, Act Your Age, to our Creative Learning projects with schools, colleges and local community groups.
Supporting established and emerging artists is a vital part of our work at Forest Forge, and we’re always keen to develop new creative partnerships with writers, directors, theatre companies, poets and visual artists.
what they say
Thanks to Forest Forge for making the whole experience the high point of my UK tour. It was an honour and a good time! May all visiting artists saunter off into the forest, have a glass of wine and perform for a full house of open hearts. Fantastic.
