The campaign centres on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to benefit from early access to the arts, which contributes significantly to childhood development.

The campaign is supported by Noma Dumezweni and Jude Law.

As a Lewisham resident I am delighted to support this vital initiative, investing not only in the future of young people, but the future of the arts. These youngsters are the leaders, audiences and artists of tomorrow. I know the power of theatre and to pass that power on to the people who matter the most is a thrilling opportunity

Noma Dumezweni: Patron, Lewisham resident and award-winning actress.

I am delighted to support this terrific initiative which has the potential to positively impact the lives of young children in Lewisham. It is crucial for the future of our communities that we find creative ways to nurture and support the next generation. Theatre has the power to inspire children and we must encourage them to follow their dreams, no matter how big.
