Boaty Youth Theatre

The Boaty Youth Theatre was established in 2011 when a group of young people were discovered working on a student film at the National Waterways Museum, locally known as The Boaty.....Which is where we get our name!  This original band of wayward youths have since grown up and gone on to do wonderful things, some still stick around as Trustees of our board or simply to jump into projects we have going on.  Since our humble beginings we have gone on to achieve many wonderful things and won a handful of awards along the way.  

The Boaty is a safe space for you to explore the wonderful world of drama, learning new skills and taking part in opportunities such as the National Theatre Connections Festival, which in 2021 we were luck enough to represent our play on the national stage, albeit, vertually! 

We would love to welcome you to the boaty family.  If you would like more information email
