Student Ambassadors

We’re always keen to strengthen links with Edinburgh’s massive student community and are currently looking for students who’d like to join our pool of Student Ambassadors. If you’d be interested in representing your university, promoting the work of Capital Theatres, bagging some free tickets and taking a look behind the scenes, please get in touch with Cat Sheridan, catrin.sheridan@capitaltheatres.com. 

 

Edinburgh College of Art

We kick off a new partnership with Edinburgh College of Art in autumn 2018. Working with students on the interior design programme, we’re exploring the foyers and bars, considering everything from where to store the drinks to how to enhance the look and feel of these spaces. Keep an eye on our Stories section for more info.
