hello Summer!

Hi Parents/Carers/Company Members,

Wow its the end of the academic year already?!
 
Don't be fooled though, just because it's the end of the academic year doesn't mean it's holiday mode for NGYT HQ..

Want to find out what's happening this month and next at NGYT?
Well, you've come to the right place...

Holiday mode: On

WOW! What a year it's been. As this term and academic year comes to an end we want to say a huge THANK YOU to every single young person, family and artist who are part of our #NGYTFamily
 
It's been a rollercoaster of a year but you've all been amazing, you've supported each other and us and we can't thank you enough. 
 
We'll be back to regular weekly sessions in NGYT Groups and Companies from September but in the meantime you can take a look below and see what we are up to next...
 
If you've ever wanted to try NGYT Groups now is the time!
Fancy some Dance, Drama, Writing or Musical Theatre? Tell your friends too!
If you are already part of our NGYT Family drop us an email at lauren@ngyt.co.uk if you'd like to have a trial session for anything new.
