Be part of the biggest gatherings of youth theatres in 2023. Join us for the National Festival of Youth Theatres from the 3rd – 7th of July in Kilkenny College.
The National Festival is a unique experience. It will provide your members with a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, work with specialist facilitators and get to know young people from youth theatres all around the country. It will be full-on and a lot of fun!
The National Festival is the largest gathering of youth theatres in Ireland. It offers 5 days of activities: including specialist core workshops, roving skills workshops, leaders’ activities, social activities and the sharing of short devised pieces with other participants. The programme is designed to help young people develop theatre skills and friendships within a supportive, creative community. For youth theatre leaders, it also offers the opportunity to build relationships with your own youth theatre members, other youth theatres and engage with the leaders’ programme of activities.
To apply, youth theatres need to fill out an Expression of Interest form by the 22nd of March. The online form can be found here.
