About us

Spare Tyre is a pioneering participatory theatre and multi-art form company. For over 45 years, we have been recognising the creativity in everyone, and making art with adults who are least represented in professional and community arts and culture.   

We run regular creative arts programmes and co-create participatory theatre shows for groups including:

  • Women who have experience of violence and abuse 
  • Learning disabled and neurodivergent adults 
  • People living with dementias and their carers 
  • Adults experiencing long-term health conditions such as Long Covid 

I can’t emphasize this enough – without Spare Tyre we would not get this immersive interaction nor would our service users be able to experience this sort of artistic experience anywhere else. The ability for Spare Tyre team to think way outside the box and then see this in practice – using lights and sounds and a looping station is remarkable. I think every Day Centre should experience these innovative ideas for delivering rich and exciting sessions.
