A brand new look to the weekly youth groups

The youth sessions are an integral part of Theatr Fach. But with rising costs in recent months, it has proven to be a challenge to hold the youth sessions as they were.


Theatr Fach Llangefni has therefore decided to collaborate with Menter Môn and Theatr Ieuenctid Môn, to transform the youth sessions and to work together in order to offer the best possible performing classes for children and young people on the island.


The weekly sessions will be held in Llangefni, in order to bring all children and young people aged 7-18 who are looking for a tase of what the theatre and perfoming world has to offer, and they will be held here at Theatr Fach Llangefni.


Carwyn Jones, Chair of the Theatr Fach Committee noted: “As a Community Theatre that is led entirely by volunteers, we’re very excited at the opportunity to collaborate with Menter Môn in order to develop the theatrical provision available to the young people of the island. Being able to offer children and young people the experience of performing in theatre productions is extremely important and is a great privilege for us. We look forward to seeing the members’ confidence and skills develop over the coming months and years.”


The weekly sessions will give members the opportunity to try scipt writing, to take part in performance workshops and to learn about what happens backstage, as well as taking part in public performances.


Nia Haf has recently received a new responsibility to coordinate the Youth Theatre, and this is what she had to say: “We have so many cool plans underway – lots of masterclasses, lots of new experiences, lots of collaboration – and I hope we have a fun first term whilst getting to know each other and what we want to achieve over the next year! I’m also very excited that we have the opportunity to be part of the panto at Theatr Fach this year.

I’m looking forward to collaborating with Aria Studios, and making the most of the opportunities we can offer to the young people on the island. From set trips at Rownd a Rownd to taking advantage of the creative connections that we have at RONDO, there will be plenty going on. We’re also in talks with several other local community groups, so watch this space – TIM is back with a bang!”


TIM Mawr sessions for young people aged 11-18 will be held from 6-8 on Tuesday evenings and TIM Bach for children aged 7-11 will be held from 6-8 on Wednesday evenings.
