Youth Courses Theatre and film courses for children and young people

Youth Courses

At Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, we offer a wide range of opportunities for young people to foster their love for the arts. Our classes are designed to provide a supportive environment where students can explore their creative potential and develop essential skills in performance, production, filmmaking and much more.

Our courses for under-18s are taught by experienced professionals as well as our own degree students at the height of their training, ensuring an enriching learning experience. These dedicated instructors create a nurturing environment in which young people can build their confidence, develop teamwork skills and gain a deep appreciation of the arts.

Financial assistance is available for Sunday Young Artists, Thursday Young Conservatoire and Summer Theatre and Film Camps via a bursary scheme. Please see the relevant policy at the foot of the page.

The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
