About Tameside Creative Community 

Tameside Creative Community (CIC) is made up of local Tameside residents brought together as Tameside Ambassadors for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Local Exchange programme. They worked alongside the Royal Exchange to bring The Den to Stalybridge in August 2019, a two-week pop-up theatre festival. They are now working together as company to continue to give a platform for local voices and celebrate Tameside with the creation of a performance project called 24 Hours in Tameside, which will result in a performance festival in Autumn 2021.
