National Theatre Connections Festival 2021

The National Theatre Connections Festival is a celebration of young people, theatre-making and the importance of access to the arts. 

Each year, the National Theatre commissions 10 new plays for young people to perform, bringing together some of the most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow. 

artsdepot is proud to once again be a partner venue for the festival, but this year is different to any that's gone before! Firstly, the entire festival is taking place online. And secondly, alongside performances it also includes an exciting programme of workshops for the young people taking part. Covering everything from directing, acting and writing, to taking your first steps into making digital work, these free workshops are a great opportunity for young people to add to their theatre-making toolkit.
