Big Youth Theatre Festival

We have been members of the National Association of Youth Theatres since 1994 and attended the Big Youth Theatre Festival in Epping Forest between 2000 and 2009. Our first trip was done on the train and we struggled across London on tubes, London overground and bus to the site at Gilwell Park, the international headquarters of the Scout movement in Epping Forest. Since then we've become much more organised. Several of us have passed our minibus test and now we take 2 minibuses and a van so that we can also fully self cater for the rather large group that always seem keen to take part. We didn't take a production to the festival for the first couple of years but since 2003 we have taken one every year, performing outside in the amphitheatre.

Sadly there has been no BYTF since 2009 as NAYT lost the funding to enable them to run it. We are hoping that it will resume in the future and if it does we'll be there!
