What do you do on a Monday night? The theatres are closed. Not a lot is happening. 

From 23 July you can be part of the Y&H community of theatre-minded people. 

The Y&H Meets are chance for you to meet the industry, discuss issues, meet and work with your peers, test out your new work and help others try out their work in development. The Y&H rehearsal rooms at Anvil House will be a flexible place for you to jump into the Y&H creative community. 

WHERE: 4th floor Anvil House, 140 Wakefield St. 

WHEN: Doors open 5.30pm. Meets start at 6.00pm
