At Barking Gecko, we believe that arts and culture play an important role supporting children’s wellbeing, improving mental health and building resilience. When children experience live theatre, it fosters creativity and empathy, improves emotional intelligence and brings bucketloads of joy.

Barking Gecko enriches the lives of children both on-stage, through our transformative theatre, and off-stage through our dedicated schools and community programs. Every year, we directly engage over 34,000 children, young people and their families.

We are proud to partner with businesses, trusts, foundations and individuals who are committed to enriching children's lives through arts and culture. Their investment enables us to share extraordinary theatre with children and families, regardless of where they live, their ability, socioeconomic or cultural background.
