Royal Opera House Bridge

What we do

Royal Opera House Bridge works to ‘connect children and young people with great art and culture’.

Through research, advocacy and co-investment we nurture networks, share learning and foster innovation within the education, arts and culture sector – particularly in communities where there is limited local provision or experience. ROH Bridge is funded by Arts Council England and is part of a national network of ten ‘bridge’ organisations.

Based at High House Production Park in Thurrock, we work with schools, arts organisations, museums, libraries, heritage sites, and councils across Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and North Kent.

For the latest news and opportunities follow us @ROHBridge or get email updates.
