Become a Friend

Support us
We really do need your support!

YMT provides opportunties to emerging artists - those that shape the artistic landscape in the future! But we need your help to do so. From as little as £1 a month you can make a HUGE difference.

We receive support from Arts Council England, the teachers' union NASUWT and many other wonderful trusts, foundations and individuals, however, we still have to fundraise around £150,000 for the Bursary Scheme, supported places on Skills Courses, investment in new scripts and scores, our paid interns and voice and singing coaches. The Friends Scheme is part of that fundraising effort. It starts at a very low level (just one pound per month!) but if we have enough supporters that can make a real difference. Find out how your donation will support YMT’s work.

The Friends Scheme has four contributory levels at £5 per month (Join the Ensemble), £10 per month (a Supporting Role), £25 per month (a Soloist) and £50 per month (Centre Stage).  

And there is even an introductory level of just £1 per month - The One Pound Plan!

If you have any questions about becoming a friend, if you would like to make a larger donation, or if your business is interested in sponsorship, please ring the office on
