Brewery Arts Centre

Outreach Programme

Opening doors for young people to the arts!

The Brewery is all about developing arts in the community, encouraging young people to become ethused about artistic performance and we offer a range of activities to help schools introduce pupils to the arts. We can see the positive effects of engaging children in the arts at a young age and there are great ways to get your school involved, both here at the Brewery or within your school.

Our Brewery Youth Arts Outreach Programme currently works in over 10 different schools, bringing the arts to hundreds of children. To find out more about Outreach possibilites, please contact our Youth Arts Team (contact details below).

Brewery Youth Dance classes are a great form of physical education and are fun and exciting for children. They also get to perform routines at the Brewery Schools Dance Platform on the Brewery theatre stage!

The same goes for Brewery Youth Music, which delivers fun and engaging singing and drumming workshops for all ages, and early years music sessions for children and parents/carers and in nurseries/schools. Music is a fantastic way to build confidence, promote positive social interaction and support development in other key areas such as literacy.

Artseen, our visual arts provision, brings specialist workshops and creative classes where pupils learn a wide variey of skills and create artwork to take home and keep.

Brewery Youth Theatre has been invloved in the Prince's Trust Children and the Arts programme which as well as bringing pupils to see live theatre here at the Brewery, also enables pupils to take part in shows and engage in fun and exciting drama acitivites.
