Welcome to

 Launched in 2017 by Big Bold Youth, a not-for-profit organisation, we provide both weekly drama classes and holiday workshops that are both affordable and accessible for young people. Taught by industry professionals, our activities are fun, engaging and rewarding, whilst encouraging students to build confidence, improve co-ordination/listening skills and make friends along the way. All our staff are Enhanced DBS checked, trained in First Aid, child protection and Special Educational Needs, ensuring your child is in safe hands. We hope you find everything you need on our website, but should you have any questions, call us on 01908 538 565, email [email protected] or use the chat option at the bottom of your screen.

The children had a fabulous time…it’s a great way to teach RE and would be very keen on doing any future projects with [Big Bold Youth]
