Community Groups

The district of East Herts enjoys a large number of arts focused community-run organisations, that provide our residents with excellent access to the arts and opportunity to explore their creativity and passion.

At BEAM, we are delighted to be able to work with many of these fabulous organisations, including:

Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society

HD&OS productions include drama, comedy, musicals and a pantomime, with plenty of opportunities for all ages to get involved on-stage and off.

Ware Musical Theatre

A group for adults, providing a wonderful opportunity to find your voice and be part of musical productions throughout the year.

Hertford Symphony Orchestra

One of the UK’s leading non-professional orchestras. All members aspire to the highest standards of music-making and they enjoy performing regular, busy concerts locally.


Herts Inclusive Theatre

Led by experienced practitioners, HIT workshops and projects are open to all and are especially welcoming to those with special needs. They provide a comprehensive programme of activities including theatre workshops for children and young people, drama groups for adults with learning disabilities, family arts activities, corporate inclusion training, and bespoke commissioned projects.

Courtyard Arts

Our local arts centre in Hertford regularly runs programmes with young carers, those living with dementia, recovering addicts, the elderly and local schools.
