Big Bold Youth was founded in 2015 and established in 2017 as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, with a mission to provide affordable and accessible drama activities for young people across the UK. Starting with three free school workshops in Grimbsy, the organisation now runs regular drama activities for 6-18 year olds across Buckinghamshire and Surrey, with more than 70 weekly students, as well as school workshops across the country.
Our main policy is acceptance. We want every child to have the opportunity to experience drama, even if they don’t wish to forge a career as an actor. There are huge benefits to be gained from joining a local drama group, from building confidence to improving communication. Whether your joining one of our weekly classes or enjoying an action packed school workshop, we have created an educational framework to guide our students through the process of developing skills in acting, voice and movement.
We pride ourselves on having some of the most passionate teaching staff around, all of whom are working industry professionals and have trained at some of the country’s leading drama schools. We have had so much positive feedback about our activities: from the ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ reviews by parents to the smiles on our student’s faces. We thoroughly believe that drama is an integral part of a child’s education and we are hugely proud to be part of their development.
