Troop at Cambridge Junction
If you’re living in Cambridge or the East of England and making contemporary performance, Cambridge Junction wants to know!
Troop is our new artist development club for performance makers living and working in the region, with benefits and opportunities designed to build the community and quality of artists in the area, and to help develop the local scene.
Cambridge Junction aims to be the rallying point for the community of local and regional performance makers. It’s a great opportunity to meet other local artists and let projects develop.
Are you involved in making contemporary theatre, dance, live art, spoken word, circus, cabaret or something in between? You don’t need to be professional, we just ask that you’re taking what you’re doing seriously.
Membership costs just £5 for a year and gives the following benefits:
- One FREE ticket to TWO shows in the Theatre and Dance programme per year.
