Arts Insight and The Loft Theatre Company based in the heart of the creative quarter in Leamington Spa are joining forces. From August we will be offering young people aged 7 – 19 exciting weekly performing arts and theatre skills classes, as well as multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. Performances will take place in the 200 seat Main House, the 50 seat Studio Theatre and in partnership with outside individuals and organisations within the local community.
I am absolutely thrilled to be joining forces with the Loft Theatre Company at a time where championing the arts and providing exciting creative opportunities for young people has never been more important. It has been a dream of mine since I established Arts Insight 11 years ago to work within a theatrical institution, to not only enable students to feel the magnetic energy that walking into a theatre creates, but also to expose the students to every part of the theatre guided by the team of passionate experts based within it. I know between us, we are going to offer young people and their families so many exciting theatrical experiences and opportunities to enjoy and celebrate as a community.
I was delighted to be invited on BBC CWR this week to talk about how it all started, why I am so passionate about every young person having access to the arts and how the youth of Warwickshire can get involved by joining Arts Insight @ The Loft from next week.
I could have easily just posted the BBC sounds link, but why do that when you can produce a short film to accompany the interview? If you click on the link below you can listen to the interview which is accompanied by archived footage gathered over a period of 10 years as Arts Insight travelled the UK delivering musical workshops to 1000's of children.
Thanks for taking the time to read, watch and listen.
All the best,
