Tender to deliver the innovative ‘Primary Schools in to Theatre’ programme in Southwark

Southwark Council is looking for an individual or organisation to deliver the council’s Fairer Future commitment to: ‘…ensure that every primary child gets a free visit to the theatre every year’

Southwark Council is inviting organisations and individuals with an experience of working in the cultural sector to submit an application for the provision services to delivery the innovative ‘Primary Schools in to Theatre’ programme.

The aims of this unique and ambitious programme are:

  • To ensure every primary child gets a free visit to the theatre every year.
  • To support Southwark’s theatres existing work and encourage development of a meaningful programme that facilitates a legacy of on-going relationships between schools and theatres.
  • Further deliver the council’s culture strategy, Creative Southwark.

Our primary aim is to ensure that schools develop a relationship with Southwark based theatres, however venues outside of the borough can be explored if they can offer a unique and inspiring theatrical experience that will benefit primary school pupils.
