Whippersnappers were founded in 1994 when professional actress Caroline Burghard teamed up with Kirk Service a reknowed R&B and Reggae artist. For the past 18 years we have been based in the Brockwell Lido building in Brockwell Park, Brixton. In April 2011 we opened our second site: College lodge in Dulwich Park. We successfully raised £250,000 to convert this listed park-keeper’s Lodge into a fully accessible and inclusive Community Arts Centre.
Whippersnappers began delivering music classes for underfives, and in 1997 created their own style of music known as “Pickny Beat” Over the years we have diversified and now provide music, theatre, art and sport for people of all ages, needs and backgrounds. We are a vibrant multicultural company with over 30 staff working closely as a cohesive team. We are proud to be a Community Interest Company, investing all our profits back into our work and remaining driven by our social aims and objectives.
