Transform Children & Young People

Megan Milligan is an Associate Artist at Electric Theatre Workshop and will be leading her very own hub space for children and young people under the age of 21 who want to have their own space and be creative with her. Set in the Theatre Royal she is hoping to bring together lots of young people from different youth clubs. She has the space and all the resources. If you
run a youth group – then this is the Hub for you.
