Sold out?

We are sorry that you have not been able to book onto the workshop of your choice – places are in high demand and Government Covid-19 guidelines have forced us to restrict our workshops numbers.

Please register your child on the waiting list for the relevant workshop. We hope to be able to provide additional workshops if the demand is high enough but we cannot guarantee this. If a place becomes available on a workshop, people will be contacted in order of date registered on the waiting list.

Inclusive BYT

Burnley Youth Theatre is dedicated to offering any child, young person or adult with a learning difficulty or disability (LDD) or even those who may just need some extra support to participate fully in our workshops. Our Connect workshops are specifically designed to introduce participants to the world of theatre in a safe, supported and welcoming environment.

It’s not just our Connect Sessions which are fully inclusive, we encourage LDD children and young people who feel they do not need as much support to attend any of our workshops or get involved with productions. We will endeavour to have volunteer support in workshops where additional support is needed to enable ALL children and young people to attend alongside their non-disabled peers.

Visits with children, young people and their parents / carers can be arranged to discuss specific needs and give a tour of the building to settle new participants in.
