Royal Opera House Bridge

ROH Bridge

Royal Opera House is one of ten national ‘Bridges’ that work across England to connect children and young people with great art and culture. Working directly with professionals in the Arts, Culture and Education sector we help support and strengthen networks and opportunities, through investment and advocacy.

Funded by the Arts Council England, ROH Bridge is based in Purfleet, Essex and works across Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and North Kent. Over the next three years we will be making investments into local and regional work that supports children and young people’s creative learning.
