Bright Young Things Drama is Back!

We’ve been developing confidence, communication, creativity and social skills in children and young people through play and drama since 2010.

After a difficult 6 months for our young people: social interaction minimised, friendships distanced, learning in lockdown, daily routine changed and everyone now doing their best to find a new normal, none of us could have predicted just how much our children would be in stark need of these 4 C’s.

We have taken our time to work with National association of Youth Drama, Education Authority and Creative Business Support Group to ensure that we can reopen in the safest yet most familiar and welcoming way we can, in line with the Out of School Settings government policy. This means there will be a few changes to how BYT operates but we know that you are BYT family, will be patient with us as we get right.

Here you will find all of our face to face classes available to book. These will have VERY limited numbers due to restrictions. We will also have an online weekly offering for those who want to remain virtual for now.

What Are Others Saying About Bright Young Things?

“Both my children cannot wait until Tuesday every week to get to BYT. They speak so excitedly about their time with BYT, they now have so much more confidence in interacting with others, socialising in a group. Lisa is such a positive, supportive person, and she and the whole team seem to have such unwavering belief and sheer determination to bring out the very best in every single child at Bright Young Things…” Claire, BYT Holywood

“Bright Young Things was one of the best experiences that has impacted my life so significantly. I use the skills i learned at BYT every day, improvisation in groups or when talking to a tutor, how aware i am of body language, how I consciously can decide about status to ensure i don’t feel intimidated when I meet new people. I loved the master classes with the coolest people from TV, theatre, and radio, and the theatre trips, so many happy memories!” Caoimhe, 20 yrs old

“BYT is very different to many other children’s drama groups for so many reasons. It’s about the journey towards a genuine love of theatre and film, not a “jazz hands” approach to performance. The staff at BYT are what make it so special, and the kids really look up to them.” Emma Tolland, parent of Archie 10, Ruby 7, Maisie 5
