South West Youth Festival 2023

South West’s Youth Groups called to join this free event!

During the Covid Crisis the McMillan Youth Theatre team decided to plan The Deisolation Festival for once we came back to ’normal’. The plan was to bring the Youth Theatre’s of the South West together to learn, create, perform and network. The McMillan Theatre has been part of Bridgwater life since 2015 and are proud to present an eclectic programme of events of theatre, comedy, music and film. Due to this we have had to wait until 2023 to find a gap in the programme where we can bring our talented young people together.

The date has now been set - it is Saturday 8th April 2023, 11am – 6pm - and it is free to participate.

The McMillan Youth Theatre will be hosting the event and invite all youth companies in the South West to get in touch with Jo, Youth Director and NODA South West Youth Coordinator, to show interest. Space will be limited, but the McMillan is easily accessible from Junction 24 on the M5 or Bridgwater train station and they also offer plenty of free parking.

Singing, dance, drama and musical theatre workshops will be held in the state of the art dance studio and theatre space, there will be open mic opportunities in the foyer/bar area and short performances by participating companies in the auditorium. Catering will be available in true Bridgwater style (we are home of the Carnival) OUTSIDE with much yumminess to be purchased……. Do you want to part of the fun?
