Young Players Festival

Young Players Festival

Every March we celebrate the beautiful, poignant and inspiring work made by children and young people in and around Oxfordshire.  In March 2018 99 children and young people created and performed at the Oxford Playhouse, Burton Taylor Studio and at Oxford Town Hall.  Work included poetry, video installations, rehearsed reading, drama and dance.  723 people watched performances or viewed the work and 250 primary school pupils, from schools participating in our Primary Playmaker programme, watched plays they had written performed by professional actors on the main stage at Oxford Playhouse.
