At Watford Palace Theatre, we make the future.
We celebrate the creativity of local children and young people.
And thanks to generous investment from the Garfield Weston Foundation, this year we’re offering an even bigger range of fantastic opportunities to develop skills and make new friends, in a safe and friendly environment.
So, if you’re a young person, or the parent or carer of one, and looking to spark a lifelong passion for the arts, you’ll find all the information you need to kickstart your journey at the Palace.
Access and Inclusion
Watford Palace Theatre is an accessible building, with a lift to the second floor where our Palace Youth Theatre (PYT) sessions usually take place. Easily accessible toilets are available on both the ground and second floors.
Our workshop leaders and assistants create a relaxed, inclusive, and supportive environment where everyone can thrive. Session content, delivery style and exercises are easily adapted so that young people with access needs can participate fully. If you’re a young person (or the parent or carer of a young person) with a physical disability, learning disability, or who is a mental health service user, and you want to try a free taster session or check out our facilities, please contact us for an informal chat.
We also believe that finances should never be a barrier to participating in the arts, and so we offer bursary places to young people from low-income families. To find out more, please get in touch with the Take Part team.
