LAUNCH is the platform of work that gives young people new skills, opportunities and pathways into employment, particularly in the Arts.

LAUNCH at Jacksons Lane

Are you aged 16 to 25? Thinking about a career in theatre? Want to make your own work?

As part of our LAUNCH programme, Jacksons Lane is running FREE weekly sessions exploring various devising techniques, in which participants will be offered creative tools and space to experiment with their own artistic voice.

Under the direction of professional actor and facilitator Nell Hardy, you will be given frameworks within which to experiment with your own ideas, and in collaboration with your fellow participants. We will be presenting ‘scratch’ performances of some of your work at intervals to be defined by the group, giving you the chance to work at your own pace.

This is an exciting opportunity to find new artistic connections, make mistakes, communicate and, above all, create.

Due to restrictions created by Covid-19 and Jacksons Lane's exciting 2020/21 redevelopment project, we are currently deciding logistical details for our LAUNCH sessions once they resume in 2021.

In the meantime, to register your interest in LAUNCH, please e-mail [email protected].

If you are interested in a career in the arts then you need to get involved with LAUNCH, Jacksons Lane's theatre company where we raise young people’s awareness of careers in theatre. It’s not just about performing, but being aware of the many roles that make a performance happen, from marketing to stage management.

Our LAUNCH projects raise awareness of other arts opportunities and increase young people’s confidence in being a part of theatre.

This has given me links and I would not have had such an amazing experience

Launch helped me interact more with people, feel confident in drama and fit in more
