About this event

An award-winning youth theatre, with a history of offering exciting opportunities for young people, TYPT has worked with many young people in mainstream, alternative and home education.

Over the years, TYPT have engaged hundreds of young people, many of whom have gone into creative, cultural industries. Their core values are:

  • To empower young people to express themselves.
  • To challenge, nurture and inspire alternative ways of thinking, doing and being in our ever-changing world and community.
  • To encourage taking creative risks; solo and together.
  • To inspire imaginative spaces and processes.
  • To offer affordable prices and flexible payment schemes to encourage full participation, whatever the circumstances.

A range of workshops for all age groups are available, based on the Dartington estate and across Devon.

About us

The Dartington Experiment began over 90 years ago when our founders, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst, set out to build a community inspired by the idea of a ‘many-sided life’.

Today, we believe that their vision is more relevant today than ever before. We aim to be a place where people can realise their individual and collective potential, and are given a chance to connect with themselves, each other, and the environment.

Across the estate, a programme of events and visitor attractions operate year-round; artists, makers, farmers, educators, craftspeople and entrepreneurs live and work; and the community continues to ‘learn by doing’, finding inspiration in the Elmhirst’s progressive ideas and experimental approach.
