The National Theatre makes world-class theatre that is entertaining, challenging and inspiring. And they make it for everyone.
HALCO are pleased to be able to support the theatre, supplying thousands of Hook & Loop Cable Ties to the lighting department. These environmentally-friendly, reusable straps provide an extremely tidy solution for bundling and securing cables at the theatre.
It is over five decades since the National Theatre Company under Laurence Olivier gave their first-ever performance. Since the opening night of Hamlet, starring Peter O’Toole, on 22 October 1963, the National Theatre has produced well over 800 plays.
The aim is to reach the widest possible audience, to be open, inclusive and diverse, and as national as possible. Staging a broad range of productions in London and touring extensively across the UK, their international activity puts some of the nation’s leading artists on the world stage, with productions playing on Broadway and touring across the globe.
HALCO shares some of the same values as the National Theature such as
- Investing in the future
- Developing talent
- Creating bold new work
- Building audiences.
Their extensive nationwide learning and participation programme supports creative education for young people through performance and writing programmes like Connections, New Views and Let’s Play. In London, they have a programme of talks, events and workshops opening up theatre to people of all ages.
