Asylum Team

The Asylum is Kneehigh’s fabulous theatre space: a place of fun, playfulness and sanctuary. In 2019 we were thrilled to be able to present what we thought was an impossible dream – an Asylum season on the beach! But none of it could have happened without a kick ass team.

Special mention has to go to the amazing Front of House volunteers. We can’t thank you enough for all your enthusiasm, time, hard work and smiles.
