From October 2018 we will be working in partnership with The Factory Young People’s Centre in Longbridge to create a new youth theatre programme. We will recruit a young leaders group of NEET Young People aged 16-25 who will be actively involved in the design, planning and delivery of a youth theatre programme for  younger people aged 11 upwards. The Young Leaders group, supported by W&T, will attend eleven workshop sessions through which they will be actively involved in the planning, marketing and facilitating of the youth theatre programme which will take place in February half term, culminating in a performance for friends, family and local people.


Want to get involved? 

The Factory Youth Theatre is a new project for young people not in employment, education or training, aged 16 – 25 living in Longbridge area. Together we will work towards producing a youth theatre project for younger children in February half term 2019.

The 10 sessions will involve learning about theatre, workshop leading, marketing, event planning and management. They will be a great opportunity to develop wide ranging skills, increase confidence and improve employability. There will also be the opportunity to complete a bronze or silver arts award.

Sessions will run on Tuesday afternoons from November to February and the half term project will run from Monday 18th February.
