Outside Edge celebrated their twentieth year anniversary on the 1st November 2019 with a birthday party at White City Theatre showcasing 20 inspiring years of groundbreaking theatre and a recovery community galvanised through drama.
On the 30th November 2019 we opened the doors of every space at Troubadour White City Theatre to West London Drama Training for a day of free musical theatre workshops for local schools and drama groups.
Using the musical Oliver! as our inspiration, 150 children aged 7-18 participated in singing, acting and dancing workshops across both auditoriums, the foyer, and even the restaurant in preparation for a showcase for family and friends on the main stage at White City Theatre.
A New Direction’s Cultural Connections sessions have formed an integral part of the LBOC Brent 2020 programme. On the 23rd January 2020 we hosted a schools focussed pitch and marketplace session for local artists and educators.
In the foyer of Wembley Park Theatre we provided a space to share ideas and opportunities, network and spark collaborations. Organisations attending included the Queen’s Park Book Festival, National Portrait Gallery, Mahogany Community Ventures and Museum in a Box.
