Young People

We work with young people aged 14-21 to explore every aspect of theatre making through courses, workshops and creative projects.  From playwriting and theatre making, to producing, and technical theatre there's something for you.  

Our free programmes run online and in-person, and particularly aim to support young people most impacted by the events of the last year. 

The School of Hope with The Paper Birds

What do you hope for the future? What matters to you right now?  This online project  is an invitation to explore, experiment, and connect with other young makers across the UK and the world. It will provide a creative space for you to explore your voice as an artist, and how that connects with the world around you.
