Education at Belvoir

Our Education program gives teachers and students greater access to our work.

Our Education Program provides students and teachers with insights into the work of Belvoir and first hand experiences of the theatre-making process.

We believe that Belvoir’s body of work has a lot to offer a schools audience and Belvoir Education aims to support all students in understanding our work whilst our access programs work to remove obstacles to students experiencing and enjoying theatre.
