The Dukes Illuminated Yellow In Memory of Lottie Edwards

The Dukes Illuminated Yellow In Memory of Lottie Edwards

The Edwards family, youth theatre members and staff gathered and met for tea and cake with bursary recipients and a surprise musical tribute from More Music’s Rachel Parsons.

Since 2021, over £8,000 has been raised through Lottie’s Fund to provide non-means tested bursaries for The Dukes youth theatre.

“Tinged with many emotions, it was uniquely memorable to share this occasion with the Edwards family and mark this extraordinary fundraising milestone. Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. We are thrilled that every donation to Lottie’s Fund creates opportunities for children that haven’t existed beforand ensures we can welcome as many people as possible to The Dukes.” – Carl Woodward, Head of Creative Communities 

“Thanks to The Dukes for making this wonderful tribute to our lovely Lottie. A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone for continuing to support Lottie’s Fund to provide youth theatre bursaries for young people from Lancaster, Morecambe and beyond. It’s a wonderful legacy and means the world to us.” -- Sarah and Philip Edwards

The Dukes Young Company is home to over 90 young people aged 8-21 from across the North West who take part in an ongoing programme of weekly sessions, theatre masterclasses, community projects and full-scale performances.
