The Bird Hoose

Welcome to The Bird Hoose

Brightly coloured illustration of two birds. One has brown wings, a yellow head and a spray of turquoize feathers coming off it's neck. This bird is mid flight and about to land on a tree branch. The 2nd bird has golden wings, blue beak, black head with gold feathers coming from it's head, and is in a wheelchair. This bird sits in the entrance to a birdhouse on the side of a tree, which has a ramp snacking its way round the trunk.

The Bird Hoose is our version of a friends club or membership scheme. It’s a place where our friends, supporters and allies can find a perch next to us and helping us in the work we do, whether that’s coming along to an event we have produced or supporting us in the other various areas of work where we spread our wings.

By joining the bird hoose, you will help us to continue:

  • producing world-class productions and projects that put the stories of disabled people front and centre
  • providing training and development opportunities, removing barriers to professional progression and nurturing future generations of disabled artists

There are three different membership levels at the bird hoose, each based on a real bird:

You can read more about the costs and rewards for each level of membership below.
