The Big Yorkshire Youth Theatre Festival

The Big Yorkshire Youth Theatre Festival is just a few months away!

We are excited to be partnering with York Theatre Royal for this celebration of young creativity from across Yorkshire.  Taking place on the weekend of July 21st and 22nd, booking will open soon, but for now get the date in your diary!

The festival will draw youth theatre members from all over the region to York. An amazing chance to share skills, spark creative collaboration, and celebrate some of the fantastic things young people are doing in Yorkshire. The theme will be Theatre in the Past & Theatre in the Future – quite fitting given the presence of the pop-up Shakespearean Rose Theatre in York this summer!

It promises to be brilliant weekend packed with workshops, performances and a chance to meet other youth theatres in Yorkshire. There will also be opportunities to bring a short performance too.

A one day pass for either the Saturday or Sunday costs £20 or £30 to take part in the whole weekend.
You can book your place by calling either the York Theatre Royal and Riding Lights Box Office (call 01904 623568 or 01904 613000).

For more information you can email kate.veysey@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk  and we’ll add you to the mailing list and let you know when booking opens.

 

T-shirts for the Big Yorkshire Youth Theatre Festival have been kindly sponsored by Grand Central.

Right Here Right Now: July

“Fast, funny, unpredictable and chaotic.
This show…should be added to every comedy fan’s calendar’
York Mix

York’s own comedy improv night is back with its own brand of sensational silliness based on audience suggestions.

You come with the ideas and our merry band of improvisers instantly turn them into chaotic comedy to kickstart everyone’s weekend. It’s funny, it’s foolish, it’s fit for family audiences, and it really does make it up as it goes along.

Join us for music, mayhem and muppetry in an unforgettable and absolutely unrepeatable evening of joy-filled nonsense… it wouldn’t be the same without you!

Friday 13 July

What if… you found you had a hidden power?
