The Marlowe Bursary Fund

Providing young people in financially challenging circumstances with the chance to join our youth theatre or dance company.

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

The Marlowe Trust can offer a youth theatre or dance company bursary for young people between the age of eight and 21 living in East Kent 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 and Sara Samuel, The Samuel Feldman NEC Fund.

Who can apply?

  • Young people between the ages of eight and 21 living in East Kent, with a genuine interest in performing or dance, but who find themselves and their families in financially challenging circumstances
  • You can already be taking part in The Marlowe Youth Theatre or The Marlowe Dance Company and wish to re-join, or want to join for the first time
  • You must be able to commit to taking part in youth theatre or dance company activities for a full academic year
