The Grand Opera House Trust is established to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the public of Northern Ireland in the arts (including the art of drama, operatic arts, other performing arts and the visual arts) at the Grand Opera House, Belfast. The direct benefits which flow from the purpose include:
• The education of audiences through high quality theatrical performances and education and outreach programmes involving schools, community groups and individuals, including workshops, professional classes, talks/seminars and demonstrations;
• The enrichment of lives through increased awareness, improved knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the arts across a wide range of genres;
• The development of new skills (creativity, performance and technical skills) and personal development e.g. via participation in our outreach programmes e.g. the Summer Youth Project;
• Enhanced accessibility to the arts for people from disadvantaged areas and requiring assistance to attend the theatre.
