From 2018-2021, we linked up with Platform to deliver a course designed to help young people decide if they wanted to pursue a career in theatre production. This was a free five-day course available to young people aged 16-20 living or studying in Islington.

They had the chance to find out more about the application process, the industry, auditioning and explore whether drama school was the right option for them.

We especially encouraged applications from people who are under-represented within the creative industry, for example students from Black and Global Majority backgrounds, low income families, disabled students and care experienced.

This course is no longer running. For more information about the Access and Participation work we do, please contact
