Kirkgate Youth Theatre is a theatre school for young people between 10 and 18 years old.
There are two public performances a year, one in the summer usually coinciding with the annual Cockermouth Live! Festival at the beginning of July and one at Christmas at the Kirkgate Centre. Kirkgate Youth Theatre is held on Thursday evenings at The Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth. Sessions are fun and challenging, and include games, improvisation, devising, script work, voice and movement. No previous acting or theatrical experience is necessary but this is a great stepping stone if students want to explore a career in theatre, film or television – or any other job that involves presenting, performing or public speaking.
Kirkgate Arts celebrates the arts and the creativity, culture and heritage of the communities of Cockermouth and the wider region of West Cumbria.
At our venue, the Kirkgate Centre, we bring audiences, participants and diverse professional artists together and provide facilities and support to a wide range of other creative artists, community activities and businesses.
