Creative Learning

As part of the Theatre’s 2020 Education & Outreach Programme, staff have been ‘On the Road’ working with schools and community organisations.

The ten-month closure of the Grand Opera House presents the Trust with a range of new opportunities to amplify theatre- and arts-based activities and events across Northern Ireland. Providing the Trust to chance to work with communities to share the heritage of the Grand Opera House and the aims of the restoration project, encourage engagement with, and participation in, the Creative Learning Programme, and promote the 125th anniversary performance programme.
Since February, the team have been delivering a range of workshops and talks on the history of the Theatre.
