We warmly invite you to become one of our growing throng of supporters – The NATS.
What is the NATS?
The NATS membership scheme is a fantastic way to let the local community know about our work. In addition to being a great encouragement to everyone at the Natural Theatre Company, a small yearly donation as a NATS member is an essential way of helping us to secure grants for amazing projects.
What do your donations support?
The NATS donations are used as “match funding” for grant applications, allowing us to deliver programmes of great value to the community that we simply could not afford to do otherwise. These have included the development of our work with disabled performers, community projects in rural B&NES, the development of our Performance Walking Tours and a heritage project with local schools and youth groups exploring the history of WWI field hospitals.
These projects would not have been possible without the support of the NATS.
Who are the Natural Theatre Company?
The Natural Theatre Company is a Bath-based theatre company who have been making people laugh in nearly 80 countries for over 45 years. We create surprising theatre in surprising places; interactive performances in the street, at parties, festivals and many other events. Combining a unique style of visual comedy with an impeccable eye for detail, we produce a delightfully absurd kind of street theatre that delights and entertains.
The Natural Theatre Company is the UK brand leader in comic walkabout street theatre. Our trade-mark is brilliantly observed characters placed in surreal situations. Our work is accessible, fun and highly photogenic. The company, which has won many international awards, is equally at home in busy streets, festivals, corporate events or at birthdays and weddings.
What do you do?
The Natural Theatre Company employs actors who are registered disabled through our ground-breaking Natural Diversions initiative, performing specially developed scenarios.
The Natural Theatre Company runs The Natural Youth Theatre, introducing youngsters to the thrill of interactive performance and street theatre.
The Natural Theatre Company is involved with many community projects that bring performance arts to new audiences and give a voice to a wide variety of participants who are new to the Arts.
We also develop historical interpretation scenarios and we are the resident company at the internationally famous Roman Baths – one of Britain’s most popular tourist attractions.
With the increasing decline of public funding the arts needs supporters, we need you!
