We were founded in

the UK in 1992.

Three decades on, we’ve grown to be a world leader in live entertainment. We’re the world’s number one live theatre company, covering every discipline in the industry. We operate venues, run major ticketing platforms and produce award-winning shows.

People are at the heart of our success. We’re passionate about bringing great live experiences to the widest possible audience; about giving the world’s best creative talent the stage it deserves; and about providing our people and partners with opportunities to realise their full potential.

Corporate Responsibility

Our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy revolves around three pillars.

  • Next Generations – introducing tomorrow’s audiences to the pleasures of live entertainment, and recruiting and nurturing the next generation of industry talent.
  • Inclusivity – improving and promoting diversity, inclusivity and well-being in the workplace.
  • Sustainability – helping reduce our impact on the environment by making our business more sustainable.

Our goal is to create a working environment that brings the best out of everyone, regardless of discipline or seniority.

Four values are at the heart of our company culture:

  • We are passionate about our work, our business and our industry.
  • We are smart in our quest for simple, efficient and innovative solutions.
  • We are collaborative and help each other to reach our goals.
  • We are ambitious and seek to exceed people’s expectations.

More than 6,000 people work at ATG. Every one of them contributes to our success and growth.

What takes place on stage is at the heart of everything we do; but it only happens because we have a brilliant team of people working behind the scenes. It’s their passion and commitment that allows us to create great live entertainment experiences.

In turn, we’re committed to providing them with the best possible opportunities for personal and professional development.

Our Teams


We strive to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, and those of our supply chain partners, through the responsible sourcing of resources.

Key initiatives include driving sustainable energy procurement, installing more energy efficient systems in our venues wherever possible, and diverting all waste from landfill.

All UK companies employing more than 250 people need to post their Gender Pay Gap figures each April.

Mission Statement:  A stage for everyone.

Our stages are a platform for compelling stories – stories that are for all, by all, and of all. We shine our spotlight on our differences and believe that understanding and celebrating these differences makes us better global citizens. We are passionate about the pursuit of true diversity and equality. We strive to make our venues beacons of these ideals in our communities. Onstage and off, we hold ourselves accountable for nurturing an inclusive culture, one in which everyone can bring their authentic selves. At ATG, we provide a stage for everyone.

We are improving our understanding of diversity and inclusion in our business through education and employee engagement initiatives, through a review of our recruitment practices, and through working with experts. Each year, staff-led activities celebrate public occasions like Pride, Mental Health At Work Week and International Women’s Day, among others.

We also introduce traditionally under-represented audience groups to the joy of live entertainment through our free tickets outreach scheme and the Jamie Lloyd £15 performances https://thejamielloydcompany.com/

We recognise that we do not have all the answers; but we strive to listen, to learn and to change in order to ensure ATG becomes a truly inclusive organisation.

We believe that live entertainment and the performing arts are a vital part of our culture. With dedicated teams across the UK, we engage with schools and community groups on a wide range of cultural education activities.

Every year, more than 60,000 people of all ages and backgrounds take part in our Creative Learning Programme. Often inspired by our current productions, these include workshops, Q&A’s with visiting companies, backstage tours, youth theatres and summer schools.

We also teach accredited programmes such as Arts Award and LAMDA and provide professional development training for teachers and corporate groups.

We work closely with more than 50 partner organisations, including the National Theatre, Get Into Theatre and many corporates. To find out more, please see our 2022 Annual Review.

We are passionate about supporting charitable causes, especially those aligned with our mission to recruit the next generation of audiences and industry talent.

Each of our venues has a Charity and Community Engagement Panel to help with requests and review submissions. You can contact them at [email protected].

A recent example of our charitable efforts would be the Ian McKellen at 80 – On Stage tour, produced by ATG Productions.  The show played in 80 theatres across the UK, and all profits were donated to causes chosen by each individual venue.
