Lighthouse was conceived to be a creative heart to our community and it is important to us that we reach and engage with schools and young people

Lighthouse has a wide range of learning opportunities available for young people and schools, most connected to the shows, concerts and cinema screenings we put on. Shakespeare, art exhibitions, concerts, drama – all feature in the Lighthouse programme and many of these link directly with the National Curriculum and GCSEs / A Levels.

For instance, take a look at this Education Pack produced by The Farm and Dance Touring Partnership - who are bringing their play Cockfight to Lighthouse on 13 October. This is a great example of how theatre at Lighthouse links directly to your work in school. 

Our offer is an extensive and varied one, a direct result of the diversity of work shown at Lighthouse across the year. We arrange bespoke workshops in connection with performances on our stages and in our galleries and we can create and arrange training opportunities for schools, teachers and others seeking to connect to their creativity. If you think we can help then contact us
