Kiln Insight

Keeping you connected

Kiln Insight is a programme of ways for you to keep in touch, learn more about, and get involved in our artistic output. From exclusive interviews, webinars and filmed content, there’s something for everyone.

We update this page regularly, so keep checking back for more opportunities to learn more about Kiln Theatre.

It was very important for us to provide this for free, in line with our mission which is about sharing unheard stories and making theatre accessible to as many people as possible.

If you are in a position to support us with a small donation, that would be an amazing help as we navigate this current situation and look ahead to our theatre reopening. You can give very easily here

We know not everyone is in a position to give financial support at the moment, so please remember there are other ways to show your solidarity – for example, sharing something about us on social media or telling others about our Kiln Insight programme.
