About Pegasus

Young people are, and always will be, the life force of Pegasus. 

Pegasus has been creating theatre for, by and with young people in the heart of East Oxford for over 50 years.  It has come a long way from the early days of Oxford Youth Theatre working out of the old Schools Meals Service building on Magdalen Road, but our ethos remains the same.  We provide young people from diverse backgrounds with inspiration for journeys filled with creative opportunity, aspiration and imagination and ensure that their voices are at the heart of everything we do.

Having outgrown its original breezeblock building, Pegasus’ striking new purpose-built venue opened in 2010.  Built around the original black box space, the 133-seat Pullman Stage regularly hosts productions from the very best small-scale touring theatre companies producing work for young audiences and, together with our Clore Studio, provides a home for our two flagship Young Companies, a Professional Acting Diploma in partnership with Bristol School of Acting, a range of drama and dance classes for young people of all ages and our SPARK supported artists.

Pegasus strives to be inclusive, accessible and affordable for all. We actively reach out to those young people who are most excluded and vulnerable within society and work with them to create a place where they can grow and express themselves. Whilst much of this work happens away from the public eye, the depth of our approach means the impact of what we achieve through our work is far-reaching and long-lasting.

We are committed to ensuring that Pegasus is a secure, sustainable and resourceful organisation.  We set high standards for ourselves and are mindful of our responsibility to steward the organisation for the next generation.
