Local theatre and performing arts groups are being encouraged to apply for funds to support their activities for young people.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available from Powys County Council’s Arts Service in providing creative opportunities for young people to experience theatre making in both Welsh and English.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Culture, said: “The Powys Youth Theatre Development Scheme is designed to encourage and support high quality performing arts activities involving young people of all abilities in all aspects of live theatre production.

“Funding is available to support organisations in providing professional standard youth theatre opportunities for young people throughout the county. We know there are many arts organisations who deliver inspiring, accessible, inclusive and high quality activities and we want to help support them with additional resources.”

Applications for the scheme, with grants ranging from £250 to £5,000 run until Friday, August 25.

Anyone interested in applying for funding or finding out more about the scheme should contact Powys County Council’s Arts & Culture Commissioning Officer at
