The Learning, Education and Participation (LEAP) Department creates a year-round programme of practical workshops, talks, tours, performances and much more. With opportunities for all ages and abilities we aim to excite and inspire every person that engages with us. 

Alongside our programme of public events we work closely with community groups, schools and partner organisations on a range of projects for each of our strands of outreach work. To find out more about what we do or how you can get involved contact us directly on 01243 784437 or email leap@cft.org.uk
