Théâtre de La Guimbarde

Company, Belgium, Charleroi

Théâtre de la Guimbarde was established in Charleroi in 1973.


Founded in 1973, Théâtre de la Guimbarde is a theatre company specialised in young audiences. Its aim is to make culture accessible to all, whatever the age or social background. In 2000, the company started to produce shows aimed at younger children (0-3 years old), the first to do so in Belgium. Since then, it has created or co-produced 13 shows for toddlers.

The company also created the “Art and Toddlers” festival, which is an annual gathering of artists and early childhood professionals. Alongside its production work, the company runs numerous training and awareness activities to promote theatre and drama play both in Belgium and abroad, and it offers nursery nurses and students in paediatric nursing artistic training aimed at nourishing their imagination.
