Following the school terms, each Young People's Theatre works towards two pieces each year created by the members and supported by professionals.

Telemachus to me means a sense of belonging. A safe space to be creative without fear of judgement or exclusion!

It's been a lifeline to me especially in lockdown, seeing friends on the screen, and playing in character also having fun which is very important to me as a person.

We can share our news and talk about stuff together and there’s acting and music and sometimes dancing two (sic) and we always makes each other laugh and we just enjoy it
