Theatre, Dance, Music and Art School Trips

Sited on Lancaster University's campus, Live at LICA (Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts) brings a wealth of UK and international artists of the highest calibre to Lancaster every year in public programmes of professional theatre, dance, exhibitions and concerts.  

We have a nationally important role as a 'safe-house' for the development of innovative contemporary arts, nurturing generations of artists.  Many of the events found in our programme tour to organisations such as the Barbican, South Bank Centre, The Lowry (Manchester), and West Yorkshire Playhouse (Leeds), and our audiences travel across the entire north to enjoy our events.

If you are a teacher or tutor responsible for organising a school trip and would like to introduce your students to contemporary theatre, dance, art and music performances please email us via or call 01524 594160 for our full packages and information.
