The Marlowe


We provide world-class education and performance opportunities for both teachers and students.

We have an incredible project coming to The Marlowe in 2023. Our production of Dawn King’s play The Trials includes many opportunities for young people across Kent. We will be visiting schools in February and March to promote the project. Visit The Trials Project page to find out more.

These opportunities can create networks with other local schools, support career development and help you inspire your young people.

We have a selection of offerings for schools, young visitors and associate schools programmes which you can browse by using the menu.

The Marlowe Associate Schools Programme

Our programme run in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company to develop and improve access to Shakespeare.

The Marlowe Associate Schools Programme is targeted towards schools who want to develop and improve access to Shakespeare, and to deliver the best teaching in the classroom through active drama techniques.

Through the Associate Schools Programme we’ve been able to offer fantastic development training for teachers across the county.

For students, the programme involves dynamic ways to learn about Shakespeare, artist-led projects, and performance opportunities on our stages, in our local community and at the RSC in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

We offer group discounts for schools on many of our shows. Get in touch with our Box Office on 01227 787787.
