I ♥ YT

I ♥ YT was a week-long celebration of youth theatre, online from 23 – 28 November 2020

Throughout 2020 we witnessed some amazing work from youth theatres across the country demonstrating how resilient, creative and downright brilliant the youth theatre community are.  

Across the I ♥ YT week we hosted talks, workshops and events and encouraged people to watch some of the brilliant performances that had been made online in 2020. We hosted discussion panels and virtual workshops where the sector and youth theatre participants could polish skills or learn something totally new. 

Participants could watch performances on their own or sign up as a group, and with our watch parties they could have a chat with us and the shows’ creators after the viewing too.
