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.

I absolutely love working backstage. It was something I had never done before arriving at BOVTS and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Madi Barncoat, BA Costume Student
