Youth programme


Would you like to play in a battle of the bands, learn special effects makeup skills, devise a murder mystery play or contribute to an exhibition – all in the atmospheric setting of a Gothic abbey?

If you’re aged 13-24 and any of these things appeal to you, then why not check out our youth programme at Kirkstall Abbey?

We’ve designed a range of informal groups and creative workshops, where you can learn new skills and make new friends.
