Play On: A Theatre Festival for Young People

We can’t believe it! It’s been TEN YEARS since our Young Theatre Maker’s programme first began. Ten years of  freeing young voices, opening industry doors, nurturing creative talent and launching theatre careers. We are so proud of and impressed by each and every young person that has been a part of this journey.

In celebration of THEM and ten wonderful years together, we give you PLAY ON; a theatre festival packed with FREE opportunities for 18-30* year olds to gain skills, build networks, take in some theatre and find out more about the industry.


Programmed exclusively by our Young Producers, there’ll be something in it for everyone! So if you’re curious about the theatre world and would like to take part, join us from Tuesday 16th November to Saturday 20th November 2021. Watch this space for details, times and free tickets!
