Take Part

We work with children, young people and schools across Gloucester. We run weekly classes in drama, dance and vocal, in partnership with GL4 and Bristol Old Vic, and we also deliver workshops and projects linked to shows in the Strike A Light programme.

If you’re a school with an interest in increasing arts opportunities for your pupils, bringing a group to a performance or working with us to deliver Arts Award, please contact Charlene, our youth arts producer.
