A residency at Shawbrook is an opportunity to pause, reflect, rejuvenate creative energies in a very unique, rural environment. A Shawbrook residency is low-tech, low-key away from the hustle and bustle of the city. What you need is within you, and Shawbrook provides a perfect environment to cultivate your creative vision. 

Outside of our annually funded residencies, our studios are available for hire by professional dance and theatre companies. Check out our calendar for  availability
