‘Every Child’ enables businesses and individuals to give a local child the chance to experience the magic of theatre. The campaign centres on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to benefit from early access to the arts, which contributes significantly to childhood development.
Since we launched Every Child in 2017, the campaign has raised enough money from the local community to provide around 5,000 free theatre tickets to Lewisham schoolchildren! The scheme opens each year to the new intake of Year 1 pupils and your continued support helps us to ensure that no child in Lewisham will miss out.
Young audiences described the shows they saw and their trip to the theatre as ‘brilliant’, ‘amazing’, ‘great’, ‘wonderful’ and ‘better than the chocolate pancakes I had for breakfast!’
‘I am a passionate supporter of the arts and I am supporting A Theatre Trip For Every Child because we need to ensure all young people in Lewisham – no matter what their background – achieve their full potential and thrive. Access to the arts at a young age increases confidence and helps children develop creative and social skills, giving them a solid foundation for the brightest possible future.’ Damien Egan, Mayor of Lewisham
The campaign is supported by our brilliant patrons – Noma Dumezweni and Jude Law.
