The Marlowe Youth Theatre provides young people with life-enhancing opportunities to express themselves, to boost their confidence and raise their aspirations by exploring creativity and developing acting skills in a fun, inclusive and friendly environment.

The Marlowe Theatre Development Trust can offer a Youth Theatre Bursary for young people between the age of eight and 21 living in the Canterbury district who are interested in joining but find themselves in financially challenging circumstances.

We gratefully acknowledge support to this fund by The Marlowe Youth Theatre Patron, Orlando Bloom, and Riki & Sara Samuel, The Samuel Feldman NEC Fund.

Who can apply?

  • Young people between the ages of eight and 21 living in the Canterbury district, with a genuine interest in performing, but who find themselves and their families in financially challenging circumstances.
  • You can already be taking part in The Marlowe Youth Theatre, wish to join for the first time, or would like to re-join after some absence due to challenging financial circumstances.
  • You must be able to commit to taking part in youth theatre activities for a full academic year as each bursary awarded will cover the cost of three terms of youth theatre fees at £192.
