There are so many ways you can get involved with  20 Stories High, whether you live in Liverpool or further away. We have a wide range of workshops, regular groups and digital discussions and we’d love to hear from you and collaborate with you!

We recruit all of our groups by asking young people to attend an open workshop or through outreach workshops we deliver as part of our programme.


1 Youth Theatre

This is our original group for young people aged 13-21 who meet in Liverpool. We make plays that mash up dance, spoken word, music, song, street dance and even puppetry! If you are interested in any of these art forms and want to make challenging plays with a difference… email guy@20storieshigh.org.uk or call 0151 708 9728.

2 Young Actors Company

This is our group for 17-25 year olds. Our Young Actors Company make and tour professional work both locally and nationally. If you really want to develop your skills and want to take them to next level, contact us and come to an open workshop! We are always interested in poets, MCs, dancers and all kinds of art forms to make new shows that come from you.


Delivered in partnership with the Unity Theatre, LAUNCH is a professional development programme for emerging theatre makers in Merseyside.

Its main mission is to equip emerging artists, theatre-makers and brand new companies with the right tools to enable them to launch a career in the arts.

4 Volunteers/ Placements

We are always seeking to help facilitate volunteer and placement opportunities. If you would like to work with us in this way, please e-mail guy@20storieshigh.org.uk or call 0151 708 9728.

5 Arts Award

20 Stories High is an Arts Award Centre and we provide ongoing opportunities for young people to gain a Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award. We also provide Bronze Arts Award toolkits for young people, groups and schools alongside some of our touring shows.

We are also an Arts Award Supporter Organisation, working in partnership with other organisations to support young people to Arts Award engagement.
