We work with young people aged 5 to 25 at the Albany and across Lewisham, providing opportunities to explore a variety of creative forms from dance, to music, theatre and even digital, whilst developing valuable life skills including confidence, leadership and team working.

We’re committed to being led by the imaginations of the young people we work with, as a result we co-create over half of our programmes in partnership with young creatives who have been part of other projects. This means you could find opportunities here in coding, writing, performance, filmmaking – anything!

We’re thrilled to announce our Youth Programme Report for 2021, that shares our latest statistics, and personal experiences from our participants.

The Youth Programme has always been integral to the Albany but in the last few years it has really come into its own. Young people have taken the lead, influencing the Albany’s artistic direction and the way it’s run, as well as taking the youth programme in radical new directions. From Board members to strong new creative voices, they’re providing the new generation of leadership that the venue needs.”
