BYT 7-11

BYT 7-11, Is a great new project that will run free, weekly drama and performing arts workshops, every Friday during term time 4.15pm – 5.45pm  

The workshops will 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. 

BYT 7-11 will provide a perfect ladder of opportunity for participants, enabling them to progress from the younger group to our well established older BYT group, (13 – 19). The young people will engage in fun, creative activities providing a positive outlet for their energy and an alternative to more negative activities and behaviour.

BYT Online.

BYT has been busy running our workshops online. We’ve been enjoying weekly play readings, acting master classes, quizzes, jokes, prizes, spoken word, castings and auditions. All to keep our sprits up, keep our talent and creativity ticking over, and help support our emotional and mental wellbeing during lockdown.



Because of the national lockdown, BYT will be running workshops online until further notice. We have contacted all our members who will be doing our first session starting 6pm – 8pm on the 8th January.

If you want to join in the fun please and want more information please head over to our About page and get in contact.

Spring term starts on Friday January 8th and we can’t wait!!!!!

In the meantime Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

BYT’s 2020 Autumn term witnessed once again the wonderful creative spirit of our members.

September’s safe, socially distanced return to live sessions launched our monologue project
with young people creating original characters and speeches which they shared with the group.

Also, In the autumn term our industry connections led to five members of BYT playing small parts in a feature film made under Covid Safe conditions.

With the end to this second lockdown we were able to return to the base in time for a wonderful final session in which members performed poems, read sections of plays they had written, played drama games and shared home cooked food and Pizza in a Covid safe and socially distanced environment.

So despite everything that’s going on we are looking forward to our new term beginning in January.

Christmas Fundraising for our New BYT Juniors (7-11)

We are aiming to launch a brand new strand to Brixton Youth Theatre.

BYT Juniors will be a free weekly workshops for 7 -11 year olds that will be at Brixton Community Base, Talma Road SW2 1AS starting in 2021

Over the past few years Talma Road,  and the surrounding streets, have run an annual street advent leading up to Christmas.  It’s been a neighbourhood led initiative to shine light on the roads leading up to Christmas and has been a fantastic way to develop community spirit.  Each house selects a date in the advent and on their day displays the number in their own individual way.  This year the neighbours wanted to see if they could run the advent, but also raise funds for a local charity and thought the Brixton Youth Theatre project based at the Community Centre, Talma Road was the perfect appeal to align with.

Thanks to Katie and all our neighbours for your support.
