Discover Barbican secondary schools
Watch: Barbican Box Showcase
A creative education programme designed for secondary schools and FE colleges, Barbican Box aims to ignite, support and facilitate music, theatre and visual art making in schools through a process of devising and creating work from scratch.
Watch: Big Barbican Workshop
We go behind the scenes of this year's Big Barbican Workshop as students explore all the art forms that the Barbican has to offer, from art, drama, movement, music to spoken word.
Watch: Barbican Box Theatre - Toneelgroep Amsterdam
We speak to Toneelgroep Amsterdam's Artistic Director, Ivo van Hove and the Barbican Box producers along with some of the participating teachers and students, to learn more about the impact of this year's project.
Get backstage at the Barbican with RSC.
Barbican Backstage invites secondary-school aged students behind-the-scenes to work practically with technical staff from the Royal Shakespeare Company as they prepare for the evening’s performance of Julius Caesar. The day will give students an insight into the technical process of staging a production, as well as the broad range of careers in the production process and wider theatre industry.
Open to academic years 9 to 13.
