Description

We start with the mini’s (under 8’s) who just love playing games, using their imagination and watching their stories come to live.
The Young Performers are a group that still love to play games and allow their imagination run wild, whilst also learning stage craft basics.
Our Youth Group take part in national festivals and enjoy the space to develop their own work, try demanding scripts and really develop their artistic skills.

In Bowthorpe
We are running a group age 5 – 13 and it’s a place to come and expand the group. We run games and scenes and shows and we are DESPERATE for volunteers to keep this group going.
