Youth Programme

Our youth programme supports young people aged 13-18 who are interested in the arts, and who are keen to develop their skills outside of school. The programme nurtures creativity and talent across music, drama and design, and provides a platform for young people to come together to express their ideas.

We run creative projects in the school holidays, bringing young people together from across Greater London and the South East to collaborate with one another and with professional artists to create new work inspired by the operas on the ENO stage.

Our Unplugged series of after school events are designed to open windows into our productions and working practices, offering the chance for young people to glimpse behind the scenes, watch stage rehearsals and meet members of the company across artistic and technical departments.

Young people involved in our youth programme have priority access to work experience opportunities across the company, and special invitations to experience ENO productions.

Join our mailing list to find out about upcoming opportunities and how you can get involved. We give priority to young people at our partner secondary schools and from our partner organisations who might not otherwise have the opportunity to access the arts.
