Discover Gloucester’s
creative brilliance

Gloucester is full of amazing people, stories and ideas.
We put them centre-stage.

We bring together local residents and professional creatives – dancers, theatre-makers, songwriters, storytellers – to celebrate the best of Gloucester by collaborating on unique, unforgettable experiences.

About Strike A Light

Strike A Light is a Gloucester-based organisation striving to make Gloucester a city with a vibrant culture for all.

We programme world class drama and dance for people across Gloucester, run weekly classes where children and young people work alongside experienced arts professionals, and support diverse artists making new shows.

We are a charity and believe that everyone, regardless of their background, should be able to experience, watch and take part in creative activity. We are supported by some brilliant funders, which allows us to subsidise ticket prices and offer free places for young people on activities.
