The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation supports The Bridge Company
The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded grants worth over half a million pounds to 17 projects across the UK this spring. These form part of the Foundation’s active grant giving programme, which supports projects that focus on the enhancement of arts education, participation, improving access and increasing diversity across the arts, culture and heritage sector
Awarded over three years, the Foundation has awarded £211,723 to The BRIT School to support their Bridge Theatre Company, a free year-long part time course for post sixth form BRIT School students. Providing an opportunity to create a theatre company and produce a show under the guidance of industry specialists and professional creative team, the training culminates in a performance of new work in a London venue. Marking the 25th anniversary of the school, the grant will allow the expansion of the company to accommodate Musical Theatre students for the first time, creating a stronger training programme that will benefit more young people.
