We are excited to announce our new Youth Theatre!

We are thrilled to be running these in-person drama sessions for young people with a passion for drama and theatre-making. Each week you will be inspired and guided as you develop experience in stage craft, theatre-making, improvisation and script work. Our programme gives young people the opportunity to be creative and express themselves in a fun and friendly environment working with Liam Gifford.

You will also have the exciting opportunity to gain an Arts Award

Mayflower Youth Theatre gives you the chance to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Make new friends
  • Gain free Youth Membership until the end of the academic year
