About Practice Tuckshop

Welcome to Practice Tuckshop — a key programme of The Theatre Practice (Practice).

Located at the heart of the Waterloo Street Arts Belt, Practice Tuckshop is a cafe that celebrates the Practice kampung hospitality. Friends, families and creatives can gather over a cup of tea or coffee, cosy up with a selection of books by local celebrated playwrights , hold brainstorming meetings, or just drop by.

As a creative playground within Practice, programmes at Practice Tuckshop are curated around unexpected intersectionalities. Past examples include: Food meets Storytelling! Differently-abled dancers meet intimate cafe quarters! The possibilities are endless. Practice Tuckshop programming is also artist-driven, hoping to cultivate a space where different communities can converge. With an open-door policy, we really mean it when we say: All are welcome!

Since its opening, Practice Tuckshop has been an advocate for sustainability in green practices. As this is an on-going effort, we constantly revise how to green-up our act!

Vision: Practice Tuckshop aims to be a creative playground, bringing together artists and audiences in a community atmosphere.
