Raise The Curtain will offer every primary school aged child in Southwark the chance to visit the theatre for free from 2020 to 2022. This opportunity is open to all children in state funded primary schools, home schooling, looked after children and children at school in hospital.

With a culturally rich community of over 19 theatres and theatre companies, this exciting initiative will bring together every primary school and educational setting across the borough with the extraordinary community of theatres and creative venues in and near to Southwark.

Southwark Council and Eastside are delighted to be working in partnership together offering every primary school child in Southwark the chance to experience the magic of theatre for free.

We are also welcoming applications from theatres and theatre and dance companies to a Commission Fund that will support the development or programming of work designed for primary school aged children. Please click ‘apply online’ below to find out more.
