With more than 2000 performers in 14 shows, across 9 venues in 3 weeks, Lewisham Live provides an opportunity for our young talent to flourish. Now in its fifth year, the festival has become an important event in the Lewisham calendar.
Lewisham Live gives children and young people the chance to perform music and dance in professional venues including The Albany in Deptford, Bonnie Bird Theatre at Trinity Laban and The Broadway Theatre in Catford.
For the first time Lewisham Live is training young comperes in association with Greenwich and Lewisham Young People’s Theatre. This is a brilliant opportunity for budding presenters to work with voice coaches, MC’s and directors to compere Lewisham Live 2014.
With ages 5 to 25 performing everything from classical to hip hop, jazz to street, this festival has everything for young people and their families. “Our children and young people develop amazing creative skills in our schools and relish the chance to show them to a wider audience; Lewisham Live gives them that chance to shine.”
