Young Court is the Royal Court’s inclusive programme of activities by, for and with young people up to the age of 25.

Young Court aims to encourage young people to discover their power to influence and change theatre, giving them a platform to experiment, question and innovate, placing young people at our centre and fostering a live dialogue in which their views and ideas are valued and can inform our work.

Young people can experience unique learning exchanges across all departments, opening up the world of the rehearsal room as well as backstage, offering a fascinating insight into the professional process of staging Royal Court productions and encouraging them to investigate the craft of theatre making.

Young Court is supported by The Backstage Trust, The Aurum Charitable Trust, The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust, Chapman Charitable Trust, CHK Charities Limited, The Ernest Cook Trust, Noël Coward Foundation, The Haberdashers’ Company, Richard Radcliffe Charitable Trust and Unity Theatre Trust.
