Playhouse to be taken over by youth again

Alnwick Playhouse is to be subject to a youth takeover for the second time this year next week.

The Young Playhouse project’s Summer Takeover takes place next Wednesday at 6.30pm. Tickets £5.

Described as an eclectic night of art and entertainment planned by young people for young people, showcasing fresh young talent, the line-up so far features Anna Tucker and Nina Robinson, Freya Stone, Meg Fletcher, Evie Mortimer, Amber Brown, Cressey Osborne, Cerys Williams and Luke Cunningham, and Kieran Renner.

Our review of the first takeover, which took place in March, described it as ‘a coup in every sense of the word – both a takeover and a major triumph’.
