Young People



The Grand has been busy recruiting young people aged 18-26 years, who love theatre! Oh and love meeting new people, to become our new Grand Young Ambassadors.


Go See


The Grand aims to work closely with its Ambassadors on opportunities like meeting and interviewing UK and international creative teams and performers, 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 to ‘go see’ shows and meet companies ahead of them visiting The Grand.


We currently have ambassadors working with some great companies including The Royal Shakespeare Company, Touring Consortium Theatre Company, Breakin’ Convention and ZooNation.
