2012 - 2018

Stagecoach Theatre Arts, the trading company within Lifeskills Education, is the market-leading franchise specialising in the provision of extra-curricular Performing Arts tuition to children. The business is long-established and is the dominant player in this market segment.

How did we help?

Catapult worked with the primary backers of the transaction, Encore Capital, to restructure the company and create a new IT and payment system that will help the business evolve over coming years.


The business was sold in August 2018 to Trafalgar Entertainment Group Limited, a live theatre and entertainment business, generating a strong exit for Catapult’s Catapult Growth Fund.
