About us

About us

We are the arts centre at the heart of its community.

Tramshed is a theatre company and community arts hub based in the heart of Woolwich, South East London. 

We offer performing arts programmes for young people and for adults with learning disabilities and differences. We prioritise artist development seeking to create career opportunities in the arts for our community. We are home to numerous and diverse community groups. We put on great shows for a first-class local night out.  

We believe that creative experiences can remove barriers between us, connect us and positively enrich our lives. We want to be the force for that change in our community - inspiring, challenging and entertaining people of all ages and from all backgrounds. 

We are a registered charity and our mission is to be the beating heart of our community and to use the arts as an agent for change.

In 2019 we changed our name from the Greenwich and Lewisham Young People’s Theatre (GLYPT) to Tramshed, to reflect the work we do now and celebrate our venue the Tramshed in Woolwich as our forever home.  

We are thrilled to announce Denise Hyland, The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich has chosen Tramshed as her official Charity!

Councillor Denise Hyland has been a Member of the Royal Borough of Greenwich since 2006 and was elected the first-ever female Leader of Royal Greenwich from 2014 to 2018.
