We are looking for the Next Generation of Leaders to join Theatre Peckham’s Young Ambassadors.

Young Ambassadors is an exciting opportunity for 10 theatre lovers interested in Arts Leadership to influence, challenge and inspire change within Theatre Peckham.

Theatre Peckham encourages all applicants between the ages of 17 – 25 with different experiences, skills and backgrounds to join us and aid in developing our working practice.

  • Residents of London Borough of Southwark
