We offer lots of great performances, workshops and experiences for schools at Gulbenkian and we can help tailor a visit to your needs.

Many of our shows have discounts for schools and for every 10 tickets purchased we offer a free teacher/adult ticket. Find out more about visiting as a school group.

We work with visiting companies and funding partners to develop projects for schools, including workshops sessions with professional artists and projects to get your students creating.

We are able to offer teacher CPD opportunities and can run workshops packed with ideas on how to bring creativity into the classroom, and we run an informal network of teachers meeting 2-3 times per year.

Gulbenkian is an Arts Award Centre and Artsmark supporter

For details of any of these opportunities you can contact Eleanor or Neelam in our Creative Learning team on 01227 816 472.
