NYT Angels

NYT Angels are our individual supporters, who support us to the value of up to £2,499. They include people who were members of NYT when they were younger, the families and friends of current and former NYT members, and those who love our work and our aim to nurture the best of young British theatre talent.

We would love to welcome you as an NYT Angel. You can donate to The NYT Bursary Fund or to the development of new creative initiatives and productions.

The NYT Bursary Fund

The NYT Bursary Fund enables young people to take part in our work who otherwise may not be able to afford to. Each year we award £650k worth of support to young people to ensure financial barriers don't prevent them from being part of our activity.

NYT's Creative Work

We believe that the best way for young people to learn is by engaging with leading artists and industry professionals. We give great chances for them to develop their talent by creating work of a high professional standard.

We're very grateful to our Centre Stage Supporters and NYT Angels
