Image of Blue Box Theatre 20th Anniversary

For 20 years, the Blue Box Theatre has encapsulated a very singular ambition; to provide opportunities, without barrier, for our young people to experience, enjoy and express themselves. Opening in 2004, with performances by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Covent Garden Street Opera Company and a host of student (then Oakwood) led productions, the Blue Box established itself - centre most to our creative heart, enabling two decades of exceptional success and extraordinary joy. 

Zoe Morris, Headteacher, described the theatre as ‘an amazing space for our young people’ outlining the importance for our students to ‘get the opportunity to feel the joy of being involved in the Arts!’.

‘Imagine how many students must have performed here over the past twenty years!?’

With up to 30-40 productions, concerts, events and workshops happening per year, it is befitting we continue to enrich the story of the Blue Box with a week of musical performances, plays and dance.

We would love for you to join us and celebrate!
