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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01524 594160 for our full packages and information.
School Bookers - Theatre/Dance Trips for Spring 2014
FREE Post-Show discussion with the artists are included with most theatre or dance performances
The majority of our theatre and dance events are suitable for Key Stages 3 and above. Many of our visiting theatre companies are also extremely accomplished at targeting workshop and discussion activity to your needs as teachers, and framing activity to specific Key Stages. Theatre workshops and discussions can often take place either on our stage, or in your own venues. Most of our shows also feature post-show discussions with the actors and crew and these too can be tailored to your students needs and interests.
If you are organising a school trip to the theatre please contact us

School Bookers - Music Trips for Spring 2014
Our music and concert series presents an international programme of visiting soloists, orchestras and ensembles, performing everything from classical to world music, jazz to new works by living composers. Click here for a full list of current music productions.
We are always happy to discuss which events will best fit your teaching of music at a range of Key Stages through to BTEC, A-Level and beyond, and we can explore ways to add extra value to your visit. We are often able to set up talks, workshops and post-show discussions with the artists within our programme. These can take the form of practical, hands-on sessions for students, or chaired discussions around the themes and content of a show.
If you are organising a school trip to a classical concert hall or a music venue for your students please contact us:
Gallery & Exhibition Tours
Whilst you are on campus, why not arrive early, or stay a little longer, and visit our free exhibition(s) within the Peter Scott Gallery. We host exhibitions throughout our Autumn and Spring seasons. We can also arrange gallery tours for your students (subject to availability).
Enhancing your school visit
Where possible, and with enough advance notice, we can arrange a free artists talk either before or after the performance
A free risk assessment for your educational visit can be requested by email email@example.com
We have ample space for coach parking and easy access for students to be dropped off outside our arts venues. The nearest drop off / collection point for coaches is on the University's North Drive outside the LICA Building (anti-clockwise direction). Coaches can then be left / parked at other locations across the campus. Full details within the University's guide. If you'd like further advice please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
