About us

We are an arts and theatre venue in Hulme, with lots of activities and shows for children and families. We are also a charity, and are supported by brilliant funders, corporate supporters and regular givers.

We believe that theatre and the arts are for everyone! They are inspiring, immersive and magical, and we want to share the joy of creativity, imagination and storytelling with children and families across Greater Manchester and beyond.

What we do

Our building is our arts and theatre hub, where theatre shows take place and where there are plenty of dance, drama and arts and crafts activities to get stuck into.

Our theatre has 230 seats, and we have shows for different ages each season. We also run weekly participatory classes in all art forms for children aged 0-13 years. These can take place in our gallery, music room, dance studio or one of our other various activity rooms.

Creative learning and education are at the heart of what we do. We work closely with schools and education practitioners to bring learning to life with the arts.

What we believe

Z-arts is a place to express yourself, to celebrate your imagination, to have fun, be entertained and dream big! So, whatever your age and whether you’re coming to see a show or make some amazing mini-masterpieces in one of our arts workshops, we hope you enjoy your visit to Z-arts and are inspired by your own creativity.
