Applications for next year’s course will open in Autumn 2024

Lighthouse is excited to once again be running our ever-popular Young Technicians programme later this autumn.

Aimed at young people (13-19) who are interested in getting to grips with lighting, sound and stage management in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings.

Participants will be guided through a structured 12-week course run by professional technicians where they will be able to work on our pantomime (Aladdin) and meet industry leading professionals. This course is a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable skills and experiences, meet others and have fun.

Each Saturday during term times in November to February we will run a workshop between 10am-2pm. Course fees are £300 for the entire programme with bursaries available. Please get in touch with us if this is something you would like to discuss.
