About

In light of the devastating effects the Coronavirus has had on our great theatrical landscape, we have put together a list of ways in which we hope to support smaller venues, companies and creative individuals. You can also find a list of very helpful resources here.

  • Have you filmed your show in a makeshift venue and now in need of a large platform to show it? We have recently relaunched our YouTube channel and would love to host your show on there. With 70k + visitors to the site per month and over 30k social media followers, your work will be seen by a vast audience. Get in touch with Sam on sam@ayoungertheatre.com to start a conversation.
  • Do you need to rant about the show you’ve been working on for months being cancelled or the fact you’re freelance and have no idea what to do for money? We hear you! As a team made up of young creatives we totally empathise and we know our audience do too. We’re currently very keen on publishing articles that deal with this subject so if you’d like to talk, message sam@ayoungertheatre.com. He’s currently in quarantine so would love to hear from you.

Can you help us?

  • We rely solely on the small amount of money we make on advertising to pay our (small) overheads and a couple of staff members a criminally low amount. As there are currently no shows happening, this is seriously under threat. We are very happy to offer good deals on packages so if you have something inspiring and arts-related you’d like for us to advertise, please get in touch via advertising@ayoungertheatre.com

Much love to you all. X
