At Stamford Arts Centre we are able to support Arts Award candidates in a number of ways:
Our live seasons are packed with live theatre and dance, comedy, film, music and more that will aid you in completing the Audience Member part of your project with added benefits of discounted tickets. It is also free to view any of the gallery exhibitions.
For Silver Award, you are welcome to review our shows - we’d love to read them!
We have a variety of workshops in differing art forms that you can take part in. Some workshops run regularly and others are one-offs so to keep updated with the workshops on offer it is best to pick up our brochure, visit our website or just give us a call to see what’s happening.
Within the Arts Centre we have several professionals available to give you guidance and advice as well as talk about their role and how they got there. It is advisable to contact us as soon as possible if you would like to speak to someone in particular to see if and when they are available, and also if you are unsure of who you want to speak to then we can point you in the right direction. We also have artists in residence and a resident theatre company.
As a receiving theatre, touring theatre and dance companies visit throughout the year - some even conduct pre-show workshops – so give us a call and we can try and arrange something for you, although this cannot always be guaranteed.
You can volunteer as an usher for theatre shows and films if you are over 16 years of age. We are also able to offer a week-long work experience placement where you can work as a General Assistant; learning all about what it takes to run an Arts Centre. Please note that we cannot always guarantee placements.
We have several spaces available within the Arts Centre which can be found on our website; however, you will need to contact us as soon as possible to discuss feasibility and the availability of space.
