About Us

Our Core Values

Be daring, kind, responsible, and adaptable.

Encourage others to develop and grow

Q2 Players embraces equality and diversity principles – accessibility, inclusivity, respect and difference – across its creative platforms.

Put simply: we’re having a party, and everyone’s invited. It would be a pretty dull party, otherwise.

The arts help us to understand difference.  But they also help us to investigate and express the things we have in common and our place in the world.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, we would like to invite you to get involved!

Membership to Q2 costs just £20 per year.

Q2 perform two large shows each year in November or December and April or May. During the summer we host small play readings, where members perform poems or rehearsed readings. Social events take place throughout the year and include meals and quiz nights.

Shows are performed in the Events Space at The National Archives:
