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

At ATG, we present the world’s best live entertainment in our venues, by partnering with top producers and creative talent. These achievements have been reached over the course of 30 years and are due to the outstanding effort of everyone in our teams.

Our UK CSR Report details the Group’s efforts to work with, and within, our communities to promote youth participation, diversity and both individual and environmental advancement and wellbeing. Inside you will find stories about our company-wide efforts – like our team’s work towards making us a zero-waste industry – as well as the small, specific projects in our venues that impact local communities. It’s only a small sampling of the array of projects and programmes we operate or collaborate on.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy revolves around three pillars.

  • Next Generation – we work to introduce tomorrow’s audiences to the joys of live entertainment and to nurture the next generation of industry talent.
  • Environment & Sustainability – We consider the most sustainable options for our work and foreground environmental impact in all of our educational and artistic projects.
  • Community, Diversity and Inclusion – We strive to improve and promote diversity, inclusion and wellbeing in live entertainment for our communities – our audiences, artists and staff alike.

View our UK CSR Report for more details.

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.

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.

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.

Find out more about our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) activities within our ATG UK CSR Report. 

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.

We engage and empower people of all abilities, ages, genders, races and socio-economic backgrounds in local communities and schools, with the aim of increasing access to the performing arts.

Every year, more than 100k people of all ages and backgrounds take part in our award winning Creative Learning Programme. Often inspired by our current productions, these include workshops, Q&A’s with visiting companies, backstage tours, career insight sessions, and audience development initiatives in partnership with producers.

We are committed to supporting and nurturing the next generation of diverse, skilled and dynamic on and off stage industry professionals. Workforce development initiatives such as emerging artist programmes, careers focused activity including the Work in Theatre course, and the ATG Academy youth theatre programme, aim to inspire and stimulate the next generation of industry talent.

We also teach accredited programmes such as Arts Award and LAMDA, host teacher and cultural networks, and provide professional development training for teachers, practitioners, and corporate groups.

We work closely with more than 50 partner organisations, including the National Theatre, Get Into Theatre, funders and many corporates.

By exploring the potential for Creative Learning programmes in the US and Continental Europe, our global ambassadorship for education, diversity and the next generation will be realised.

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].
