Young People (5-25)

Our work with young people is at the heart of Jacksons Lane. We deliver free circus and drama projects across Haringey that focus on raising confidence, cultivating creativity, having fun, making mistakes and building community.

Our current projects include JL Circus (ages 8–18) which offers free weekly circus and theatre sessions to young people in Haringey out of school hours. These sessions culminate in our annual JL Circus Showcase, where our young people are able to create stories and perform the best circus tricks they’ve learnt on a professional theatrical stage.

LAUNCH is our free careers and skills development programme, offering interactive schools workshops that illuminate the many career paths within the arts. LAUNCH’s other component is our free weekly Drama and Theatre sessions for 16 – 25 year olds, held at Jacksons Lane.

We do not hold auditions for any of our programmes, and are committed to making each session accessible for every young person we work with.

We take pride in our Youth Board, and are a key contributor organisation to the annual Haringey Youth Festival. We are also an Arts Award Supporter and Arts Award Centre. Have a look at the sidebar to see the projects in more detail.
