Playhouse Youth

Young People at Leeds Playhouse

OUR YOUTH OFFER CONSISTS OF CREATIVE PROJECTS, WORKSHOPS AND PRODUCTIONS FOR ANYONE AGED BETWEEN 5 AND 25.

Over 500 young people access the Playhouse every week both in the theatre building and Leeds Playhouse 2 home to our dedicated creative space for young people located on the first floor.

The programme’s innovative approach combines outstanding professional artists and qualified youth workers to offer creative experiences that encourage young people to explore the world and their place within it, building their confidence and raising aspirations. In addition to the many benefits that participation in theatre can bring, young people can also gain qualifications and work experience to prepare them for the future.

Playhouse Youth, we need your help!

Students on our creative learning course for young people are making a film during lockdown and would like to include as much content as possible from young people all around Leeds.

We’re asking you to send us images and/or video footage which shows:

  • How you’ve been keeping busy in lockdown, maybe a creative project, learning to cook, or learning a new skill etc.
  • Photos/videos that remind you of the NHS or Key Workers in our city.
  • Photos/videos which show how much you’re missing your friends or family.
  • Photos/videos to show what you’re looking forward to after lockdown.
  • A picture of a brew in your favourite mug.

If you can, please send your images and videos in landscape mode but you can still submit if you have existing photos in portrait mode. Please only send in footage you are happy to consent to being used and shared publicly. We ask that you don’t show any personal information such as where you live, phone numbers, or social media usernames. We’ll do our best to include as much as possible.

Please send in your content by 5pm, Friday 19 June to engagement@leedsplayhouse.org.uk. If you have any questions, please get in touch
