Youth Advisory Board

Posted on: 16th June, 2023

Young People and the community are at the core of Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. Through working annually with 9000 young people, Theatre Royal aims to make theatre and the arts as accessible as possible to young people within West Suffolk. Through our creative learning projects, Youth Theatre, SENsory Youth Theatre, After School Drama programmes and in-house productions, we want to make sure that young people are not just heard by our core team of staff but also actively represented and seen within our strategic conversations.

Working separately from the main board, the Youth Advisory Board will be facilitated by young people aged between 10-22 years working with the theatre’s core team of staff to reflect the wants and needs of local young people.

The Youth Advisory Board will collaborate on a series of projects chosen by them and by our core team throughout the year, highlighting opportunities for change within our theatre. The Youth Advisory Board will work together to make sure that young people’s voices are represented within the decisions made at the theatre and will help generate new ideas to make sure that we continually represent all of our audiences.

Meeting on the first Tuesday of the month, the board will be made of 8 members who will be led by a Chair of the Board and a Vice Chair working together on projects that will impact both the organisation and the involvement of young people within the building.
