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 from Black Theatre Live, connected to their show 'Mountains; The Dreams of Lily Kwok'. This illustrates perfectly the links between the performances at Lighthouse and the work going on in classrooms.
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 would like more information, please contact our learning team.
The best place to see curriculum-relevant information collated together is in the most up-to-date Big Bang, Lighthouse’s learning and participation newsletter, which you can read below!
