Steven Atkinson

I'm Steven.


I’m an award-winning producer and consultant with 20 years of experience producing new content and projects in digital, film and theatre.

In 2019, I founded Long Acre Arts in order to provide consultancy, project management and producing services in digital, film and theatre to clients in the UK creative industries.

After an apprenticeship in script development and fundraising, my producing career started in 2007 when I co-founded HighTide. In twelve years as CEO, I established HighTide as one of the UK's leading theatre companies. I produced over sixty new plays with theatres including the National Theatre, The Old Vic, Young Vic, Bush Theatre, Soho Theatre, in the West End, across the UK and Off-Broadway. 


Outside of Long Acre Arts, I work as Head of Producing & Partnerships at London's Royal Court Theatre. I am also the Founder of Roots, Yorkshire's queer international touring theatre company. I'm a BAFTA Connect member and a UK Theatre member. 

I'm always interested to meet creative organisations and freelancers. So if you would like to explore bringing your ideas to life, do say hello!
