Taking place after this mentoring session is our “Speakeasy” at 6.30-8.30, hosted by Elvis McGonagall for Young and Emerging Writers and Performers.

LRS Arts deliver an artist development and a live performance programme that identifies, supports then actively promotes, performance artists at the early, to mid career stage in Devon and Cornwall. The mission of LRS Arts is to nurture and develop emerging talent and ensure they are prepared to perform at their peak.

We achieve this through mentoring sessions facilitated by established artists, performers, musicians and teachers.

The programme builds performance skills and confidence and introduces young artists to the professional reality of high profile festivals and tours with significantly large and diverse audiences.

Location: The Writers’ Block, Merlin Building, Cornwall College, Redruth TR15 3RD
