The Grand provides activities within the arts, supporting and transforming children and young people by enriching their learning and potential with theatre productions, creative projects and resources.
Grand Young Ambassadors
We look for Young People (18-26) who are outgoing, love meeting new people, and arts are part of their DNA to become one of our very special Grand Young Ambassadors.
The Grand works closely with its Ambassadors on opportunities like meeting and interviewing UK and international creative teams and performers, help with planning and organizing events and activities, gaining marketing skills e.g. social media/blog writing, travel around the country with The Grand’s marketing team on ‘Go See’s’ and meeting companies ahead of them visiting The Grand.
We currently work with some great companies including The Royal Shakespeare Company, Touring Consortium Theatre Company, Breakin’ Convention and ZooNation.
