What is Young Storyhouse?

Young Storyhouse is a collective of groups for young people (14-25) at Storyhouse that meet for regular sessions to provide young people (aged 14-25) with real-life industry experience in the arts and libraries, as well as supporting them in gaining new skills, building friendships and achieving qualifications. Young Storyhouse has a focus on creativity.

Members of Young Storyhouse have created, produced and marketed their own film, music and theatre festivals; written, devised and performed brand new pieces of theatre; designed lighting and sound as part of the technical team; completed nationally-recognised awards; organised and led activities for children, chaired panel discussions with industry leaders, and much more.

Young Storyhouse has three strands – Young Leaders, Young Company and also Youth Theatre (which is for 5-13 year olds). You can find out more below.

Young Leaders

Young Leaders supports young people in being creative, gaining new skills, building friendships and getting a qualification. We’ve worked with young people to find out what they want and need, and here they will receive mentoring, training and given practical opportunities to help them develop, create and grow both professionally and personally.
