OperaUpClose Young Friends Launch Night

Event organized by OperaUpClose

Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

OperaUpClose is so excited to launch its Young Friends Scheme at East London’s Arcola Theatre Bar on Thursday 12 April.

Entry is FREE, so bring your friends, grab a discounted drink at the bar and meet like-minded young people living in and around London.

The OperaUpClose team will be around all evening to chat about the work we do and answer any questions about life as a professional in the arts.

You can reserve your place at: http://www.operaupclose.com/young-friend-launch

Our mission is to show that opera is a vibrant, living art form that everyone can enjoy and be inspired by. There is a place for people of all genders, ethnicities, backgrounds and economic means as part of the audience; as performers; and behind the scenes, at our productions.

We do everything we can to make sure young people can access our work (like £10 tickets to all shows!) and this scheme is the next step in our mission.

Looking forward to seeing you there!


Our Young Friends supporters scheme includes:
A quarterly newsletter containing exclusive interviews, sneak peaks, articles and music recommendations
Invitations to events with artists and industry professionals – after-show drinks, talks, Q&As
More networking nights
Priority ticket booking
