Can you believe it's June?!

We can't believe its nearly the second half of the summer term!
We hope you have all had a fab Bank Holiday weekend and we cannot wait to hear what you have been up to over half term!
 
We hope our #NGYTFamily are enjoying seeing friends and family back at school/college/uni and outdoors safely following the Government Guidelines.
 
We are pleased to announce that all NGYT members aged 3-25 can return to all Covid-secure NGYT sessions in person as of Monday 17th May!
Woo Hoo!
 
We know it's been such a strange, uncertain time and the adjustment of going back to school, college and work and socialising may be making you feel uneasy.
We hear you, we understand wholeheartedly and are here for you. We look forward to seeing you every week & being creative together.
 
If you've ever wanted to try any other NGYT Groups now is the time! Fancy some Dance, Drama, Writing or Musical Theatre? Tell your friends too!
Drop us an email at lauren@ngyt.co.uk if you'd like to have a trial session for anything new.

Online and covid-secure in person sessions with young people include discussions, exercises tasks exploring a range of topics around the theme of anxiety and wellbeing.

We are currently in the creative process of The Talk in collaboration with Director Shanté Campbell, Actor Nadia Johnson and NGYT theatre company members Louise and Chelsea.

This digital performance and resource is being created to raise awareness of the conversations happening around systemic racism, unconscious bias and the injustice families are having with their young Black children.
