City Lions

Are you aged from 13 to 16 and living in Westminster?

You can get exclusive access to Westminster’s most inspiring cultural organisations and get the chance to boost your CV by taking part in talks, workshops and work placements with some of the biggest names in the creative industry.


We were previously taught that art is a paintbrush and paper but today has shown us that art is a huge world. City Lions is a good thing to do as it provides really good opportunities to visit places like this (Somerset House).
