Sad News 

We received the very sad news about Nick ‘Ferg’ Ferguson who passed away this week. Ferg was a brilliant production manager for NYT over many years and inspired so many with his talent, knowledge, humour and great can do attitude. 

Funeral details below: 

There will be a cremation on Wednesday 14th March at 2.15pm at Canford Cemetery, Wesbury on Trym BS9 3PQ, The service will conclude at 3pm and then there will be drinks at the Tobacco Factory (Theatre Bar) at Raleigh Road BS3 1FT 


The Fall Survey 

Later this year National Youth Theatre are staging James Fritz's The Fall, a play about young people’s relationship to older people. The play also explores themes of housing, loneliness and end of life care. To coincide with the production, we're looking to find out more about how people of different ages feel about some of the issues facing society today explored in the play. 

We have created a survey around the show which takes around 5 minutes to fill in. Everyone who completes it will receive a £12 discount code for the production at the end. 

You can exit the survey at any time, and do not have to answer any questions you do not wish to. 

All responses will be treated anonymously. We'll be using them to inform a big creative conversation that we're planning to hold in response to the production of The Fall by James Fritz.
