Young People

Cheap tickets, workshops, events and a national festival of new writing and theatre-making.

If you want to find out how the National Theatre puts on productions or if you want to try something new, then there are loads of things we offer to help you gain skills and make theatre. From Q&As to workshops and short courses, if you are aged 16-21, however much experience you've had, then there is an opportunity at the NT for you. 

The National Theatre's Youth Programme for 16-21 year olds is supported by The Derrill Allatt Foundation.

Summer Space to Create 2019

Led by theatre-makers and puppet innovators Brunksill and Grimes, this is a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with some of the UK’s most exciting artists to bring ideas to life through devising, experimentation and bold performance.
