Gosforth Civic Theatre

Gosforth Civic Theatre is a social enterprise that is managed by and run by Liberdade Community Development Trust. 

Our vision is to create a truly inclusive arts venue that breaks down misconceptions of learning disability and demonstrates that learning disabled individuals are able, skilled and valuable members of society. 

In 2014, we won a competitive process to take on the community asset, Gosforth Civic Hall. This building will enable Liberdade to increase it’s impact on the wider community by developing a truly inclusive arts venue, café/bar, gallery and community facilities. These new social enterprises will be used to provide valuable real world work placements for learning disabled people; enable us to build a home to bring local people and learning disabled people together.

At the same time we hope it will fundamentally change the position and perception of the learning disabled community from one which is peripheral within community provision and reliant on other providers, to one which puts this community at the heart of social development within Newcastle and its sub-region.
