Tramshed offers theatre opportunities for young people aged 5 to 17.  Our courses run in 10 session blocks across the school terms.  The courses culminate in the summer with our Youth Theatre Festival where each group performs their work to an audience of friends and family. 

All our classes are run by professional Youth Theatre Practitioners and each session explores different theatre skills and develops the confidence and well being of the participants.  

We currently have spaces on all our youth theatre programmes. To register for a place, please download the registration form and send back to Rosalind.

New members will be able to start in Summer Term 2020 - Saturday 25th April
