Blackpool Grand Theatre loves working on it’s creative partnerships, so much so we work with many organisations including: Royal Shakespeare Company, Blackpool Better Start, Edge Hill University to name a few.


We have a current programme with Children’s Theatre Partnership, which is an programme led by Blackpool’s Grand, leaders in this field is focusing on encouraging young people’s individual resilience. With Get Into Theatre the partnership will be nurturing new talent by showcasing the hundreds of rewarding careers in theatre.


RSC Associate Schools Programme

The RSC Associate Schools Programme is our long-term partnership programme. We want to use the next academic year to support resilient learners using the power of Shakespeare.


The Associate Schools programme is open to secondary, primary and special state schools in England and we seek to recruit schools from across Lancashire, that serve areas of relatively high socio-economic deprivation.


The programme is built around the principle of schools working in local partnerships to develop communities of practice, our partnership here in the North West is vibrant and resolute.


The fundamental ambition of the Associate School Programme is to bring about a significant change in the way young people experience, engage with, and take ownership of the work of Shakespeare.


Teachers learn to explore Shakespeare with their students in the way actors do in a rehearsal room, using dynamic, active approaches. Having a laugh is the key! Discover more and apply.
