Taking Part is a Creative Engagement Department that works with young people, adults, schools, and our local community.  We engage with over 15,000 people a year, providing free tickets to all our shows and free creative and artistic opportunities to our participants. 

Our three strands, Learning, Participation, and Neighbourhood Theatre, create work that is the beating heart of the organisation. Each year Taking Part’s programme responds to a shared theme. Last year we explored ‘Home, History and Heritage’ and this year we are responding to the provocation ‘Freedom of Expression’.

We think of the Young Vic as 'the home you didn't know you had’ – come in and join us.
