Our free Young Creators scheme for 14 to 18 year olds meets at the theatre on Tuesday evenings, where members work together to make exciting contemporary theatre that is drawn from the ideas and opinions of the young people themselves. The young creators will produce and perform in new plays that they have created from scratch taking the role of performers, writers, directors and whatever other creative roles are necessary. 

This is group is referral only. When spaces become available, we run taster workshops with local schools and youth groups in our target postcodes of HU3, HU6 and HU7. If you are a group leader or teacher in these postcodes with an interested young person, please get in touch via
