Following the successful pilot of the Young Critics scheme at Theatre Royal Winchester we are proud to be working with the theatre to extend the project throughout the summer.

It’s important for us as an organisation to be working with our partner to develop this scheme further, there is a need for developing future critics, especially within the South West and the Young Critics scheme is beginning to do that. Across seven weeks participants will get guidance and masterclasses from some of the UK’s best and most diverse group of print and online theatre critics.
