BYT 7-11 Autumn Term Friday 9th September 4.15 – 5.45pm

We’ve had an amazing summer jam packed full of activities, which included our two HAF projects, that ended in a trip to KEW Gardens, to see Jungle Book. Participants and their families then spent the rest of the day exploring the KEW Gardens and all its features. 

Now we are back for our new term of regular workshops which begin on Friday September 9th 4.15 – 5.45pm

The workshops use drama as a fun and exciting tool to:

  • Build confidence, communication, interpersonal and creative skills; 
  • Develop literacy skills, and support the school curriculum; 
  • Build acting and performance skills and give young people access to the profession. 

Young people will engage in fun, creative activities providing a positive outlet for their energy and an alternative to more negative activities and behaviour.

New members welcome so contact us if you would like to join.

Every Friday
4.15 – 5.45pm

BYT 7-11 provides a perfect ladder of opportunity for participants, allowing them to progress from the younger group to our well established older BYT group, (13 – 19)
