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 14-21 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 lucy@20storieshigh.org.uk or call 0151 708 9728.


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.

3: 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 lucy@20storieshigh.org.uk or call 0151 708 9728.

4: Arts Award

20 Stories High is an Arts Award Centre and provides ongoing opportunity for young people within our Youth Theatre & Young Actors Company to complete Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Awards on a one-off basis – as well as work experience students.
We are also part of the Merseyside Youth Theatre Forum, who offer places on the Arts Award Festival – for young people aged 13-25.

5: Culturepool

20 Stories High are part of the Liverpool Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP).
This was set up to increase opportunities for children and young people across our region to take part in quality art and cultural experiences. The LCEP has developed Culturepool.org where you can search for cultural education resources, activities and experiences for children and young people and find out more about the work of the LCEP.
