Creative Learning at Crewe

Crewe Lyceum Young Ambassadors

Crewe Lyceum Young Ambassadors are our youth representatives for our theatre. Applications are now open below to become a Young Ambassador for September 2021. 

You can learn more by joining one of our free digital workshops on a variety of topics with guest speakers from across the creative industries.

The Crewe Lyceum Young Ambassadors play an active role in shaping the theatre into an accessible place for young people, whilst benefitting from the experience and expertise of being a part of a busy working theatre. 

The programme is aimed at local young people age 14-18, who have a genuine interest in pursuing a career in the arts industry. 

Young Ambassadors will benefit from experiences and guidance to help kick start them on their professional journeys. This may include;

  • Free tickets to shows
  • Trips and visits to other venues
  • Skills workshops with industry professionals
  • Support to plan and deliver your own projects and events
  • Unique behind the scenes access to your local venue
  • Careers future planning guidance

 In return, their feedback and input are used to make a genuine difference here at the Crewe Lyceum Theatre.

The programme runs over the course of an academic year from September to July, meeting on a weekly basis. 

We are looking to create a panel of diverse individuals to create a panel that suitably represents our local area. 

Covid-19 Notice

Our current plan is to deliver our weekly sessions as usual in the Crewe Lyceum Theatre Studio space from September 2021.

However, this is subject to the latest Government guidance and may be reviewed if further changes are made to health and safety guidance. If the sessions are unable to take place in the space from September 2021, the activity will be relocated to digital and online engagement until such time as guidance allows us to return to the Studio.
