Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation awards Future Talent £30,000

Established by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1992 to promote the arts, culture and heritage for the public benefit, the Foundation has an active grant giving programme for projects which make a positive impact on the quality of life of both individuals and local communities.  The grants also focus on enhancing arts education, widening participation and engagement for those with challenging backgrounds or limited access to the arts.

In September, the  Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation announced new grants worth over £630,000 to 21 organisations, many focusing on encouraging young talent.

Andrew Lloyd Webber commented:

“The creative industry in the UK is thriving, but to retain this vibrancy we need to support the talented young people of all backgrounds who are looking to take their first steps towards a career in the arts. I have been lucky enough to enjoy a successful career doing something that I love and am delighted that my Foundation can support young creatives of the future.”

Future Talent was awarded £30,000 over three years towards its Mentoring, Career Advice and Performance programme.
