What we do

Big Telly Theatre Company

Set up in 1986, we are Northern Ireland’s longest established theatre company.

We make professional touring theatre. We specialise in site responsive theatre. We also create participation projects across NI.

We are a small company with a huge reach. We are playful, skilled and experienced. We’re not afraid to do things in different ways or make work in new contexts. We’ve made theatre in shops, swimming pools, and towns – as well as on the stage.

We are based in Portstewart on the north coast, and are proud to be part of Northern Ireland’s strong theatre heritage and its vibrant creative future.

Our Partners

Because our creative programme is so diverse, we work with an incredible range of partners. Partnership working is one of our key priorities and enables us to reach audiences we perhaps wouldn’t on our own. We are very fortunate to work with the people and organisations below.
