Burnley Youth Theatre has secured funding for a further three years.

The non-profit organisation, based in Queen’s Park Road, has been awarded £190,000 by the Arts Council England to continue their work with young people.

Founded in 1973, the theatre provides dance, drama, writing, music and film workshops for children and young people up to the age of 25.

Dr Mandy Precious, Burnley Youth Theatre’s artistic director, said: “This is a fantastic piece of news for BYT. It will mean that we can continue developing our work and reaching ever more children and young people.”
