Vamos Theatre is the UK's leading full mask theatre company, taking its funny and fearless brand of wordless theatre across the length and breadth of the country and beyond since 2006.

Vamos Theatre’s trademark style marries full mask with strong visual design and an original soundtrack. We make accessible, humorous, human, and fearless work which is based on real life stories, and our productions are rooted strongly in social research.

We tour a full scale mask theatre production throughout the UK annually, as well as performing at national and international festivals and events. We share our skills in schools, with NHS staff, in care homes, with teachers, actors, carers, social workers, the deaf community, business leaders and more. Our full mask characters entertain at festivals and celebrations, bringing fun and cheek to events nationwide, and our Youth Theatre learn the skills that will take them, and full mask theatre, into the future.

All our shows are created in consultation with members of the public who generously share their knowledge and experience of particular issues with us.

We have a national network of over 100 venues that expands with each new production, including leading contemporary arts venues and festivals such as London International Mime Festival; Jacksons Lane, London; Perigueux International Mime Festival, France; mac birmingham; Glastonbury Festival; and a wide range of regional producing theatres.

Based in Worcester, Vamos Theatre is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.
