About Burnley Youth Theatre

Burnley Youth Theatre is a vibrant arts organisation that was initially established in 1973 by a group of volunteer parents who wanted a safe place where their children could go and participate in drama based activities. Over the past 45 years, the organisation has grown significantly, we now operate from a purpose built theatre venue and our facilities include a 158 seat theatre, 3 studio spaces and 2 outdoor performance spaces.

Our core purpose is to engage young people and families in the creative arts. We provide activity across a range of art forms including drama, dance, musical theatre and film and we aim to provide inclusive opportunities that are accessible to everyone. As a charity, the work we deliver sits within our charitable aims and contributes to our mission statement ‘to creatively inspire children and young people to take their next steps’. Burnley Youth Theatre is a National Portfolio Organisation, regularly funded by Arts Council England.

We would especially like to encourage applicants from diverse and minority backgrounds to apply. Applicants should be willing to undertake a DBS Check.
