For 35 years, Wac Arts has sought out and embraced young people who would otherwise be denied access to the arts across education and training. A Supporting Cast membership entitles you to a selection of great benefits and your donation will enable a young person who needs it most to experience joy and affirmation through, music.

All options to be paid at the door on arrival


Funds raised by this series support Wac Arts, giving music training to young people who would not otherwise have the chance to play an instrument. The first opera series raised a vital £900 which meant that two young people will be able to take part in Wac Arts weekend programmes next year.

The series starts on 18th October in Dance Studio 2 here at Wac Arts
Tube: Belsize Park
Buses: C11, 46, 168, 268
