About Us:

Access to the Arts / Read College supports disadvantaged and under-represented young people in the Performing Arts.

As well as running the UK's leading Performing Arts Foundation Courses to give our beneficiaries the chance to train full-time for a career in theatre, we also operate a growing outreach programme which reached over 2,000 across the UK (in 2019).

Many of our full-time students live, and have been at school, within the local area, and are supported by the Access to the Arts funding scheme. 

Access to the Arts is looking to support even more young people in this way and expand the outreach provision within the local community. We also have exciting plans for a refurbishment and upgrade of Read College's home at St Bartholomew's Church - facilities which can be offered to the local community.

We would love your help so we can continue to offer and expand Access to the Arts!

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Helen & Jamie Read, Joint Chief Executives
Read College / Access to the Arts
