Friends of Centre Stage

Friends Of Centre Stage (FOCS) is one of our proudest achievements from the last 12 years. It was established in 2016 by a group of parents with the intention of raising funds to increase the opportunities offered to young people in performing arts.

Since then, we have raised many thousands of pounds – all of which has been reinvested into ALL the students at Centre Stage through our productions, showcases and workshops. We have been able to offer reduced fees, bursary spaces and higher quality performances to 1000’s of young people in this time.

We’ve just recently appointed a new committee and we’re keen to continue to raise funds to enhance the work of the Centre Stage Family and help give even more children the chance to shine.

We plan to hold lots of events throughout our the year at our academies and within the local community.
