Barbican Theatre have launched an online community called B-Hive (see what we did there?!). This will be a place where you can connect and engage with the work Barbican Theatre Plymouth is doing.

B-Hive is for young people, students, emerging artists and makers. Many of the activities and challenges are suitable for anyone and not just those already involved with Barbican Theatre through ReBels


As well as activities and challenges which we hope are both fun and informative we also want to use B-Hive to provide practical / useful tutorials for people already involved or hoping to be involved in performing arts. So you'll find information being added from our experienced colleagues such as our Production & Technical Manager, ReBels Leaders, Marketing & Communications Manager and even our CEO, on techniques and processes in those areas of performing arts.

If you have any suggestions for tutorials, challenges or activities you would like to see, please send these through to our ReBels Co-Lead James Woodhams at rebels@barbicantheatre.co.uk

Check out some of our B-Hive Activities, Challenges and Tutorials below!
