We are a purpose built theatre set within beautiful woodland. We produce and programme pioneering work with, by and for our community.

Enriching the lives of individuals and the people around them.


Burnley Youth Theatre is a place where you can belong. Our theatre is a hub of creativity for everyone to experience whether you’re here to; see our latest show; take part in a workshop or event; develop your skills as an artist or to immerse yourself in our volunteer programme. 

We are a national leader in youth theatre provision and outreach work, we are dynamic, inclusive and creative. Our mission is to provide exemplary arts based opportunities which inspire and challenge generation after generation to recognise their talents and aspire to the future.

We work indoors and outdoors, in person and online, at our theatre and other venues up and down the country, in education settings, community centres, libraries, town centres and more. We believe you can create impact through the arts in all settings and are passionate about creating accessible spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Our vision is that all children, young people and their families, regardless of background, are able to create, participate in and watch quality theatre and that through doing so they are able to realise their full potential, developing skills and relationships that enhance their life.
