Europe’s leading conservatoires, offering musicians,
actors, stage managers and theatre technicians an
inspiring environment in which to develop as artists
and professionals. While the School’s main role is to
provide the highest quality of professional training in
higher education, the early training of talented children
is regarded as fundamental with great importance and
resources given to Junior Guildhall.
Junior Guildhall is a specialist Saturday School offering advanced training to young people between the ages of 4 and 18. The students are able to combine their Guildhall training with their general education in local schools. They come together to experience and learn about music and drama under the guidance of staff drawn from London’s orchestras and freelance professionals. Most of the students go on to study their chosen discipline full-time at undergraduate level, eventually making careers in the profession, though others can, and do, move into totally different fields.
Links between the full-time courses of the School and Junior Guildhall are strong and many professors teach on both programmes. Junior Guildhall students are often invited
to participate in the School’s events and, on Saturdays, the entire facilities of the School are given over to Junior Guildhall.
Visitors are always welcome - if you wish to arrange a visit please contact the Junior Guildhall office.
Regardless of their ultimate direction, students find that the professional artistic environment of the Guildhall School provides them with valuable life skills and the means to develop their individual talents to the full. The fulfilment of self-expression and self-discovery together with skills of communication and responsibility will have an enduring influence upon their lives.
Tours To Guildhall
We discovered this almost by accident, but very glad that we did. There are the remains of a Roman Amphitheatre in the basement - fascinating - and a really interesting Victorian art collection... more »
It’s a pretty building, but much like others from the same time period. I’m not even certain if one can go inside it, but the door was locked and we didn’t go into the attached museum. more »
I've been there last autumn and really enjoyed the guided tour of the Guildhall Art Gallery and the stunning interiors of the Guildhouse itself, including the stained windows in the basement. The buildings are all very accessible with elevators/step-free access throughout.
We were lucky enough to get inside the Guildhall, fantastic history. Also saw the Roman amphitheatre downstairs, worth a visit.
