Easter 2020

By Project Archive


Following our Management Team planning meeting on Tuesday 17 March 2020 we are sorry to say we have cancelled our Easter Holiday Activity project. The wellbeing and health of the young people taking part, their families, our staff and volunteers is our priority during this unsettling time with the Coronavirus.

All those who had already booked on have been contacted via. email. Any queries please email us at

Thinking beyond our Easter project we are continuing to plan ahead and will cancel/postpone events should we need to. Our Summer School is planned for 24-27 August – we hope to see you at Bedales for 4 days of ‘fun’. Keep an eye on our website for updates of ‘What’s on’.

We thank you for your understanding and wish you a happy Easter holiday time.

Best Wishes,

The PYT Team 

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

By Project Archive

Step through the wardrobe with PYT this December into the magical kingdom of Narnia. Say hello to a talking faun, meet an unforgettable Lion and join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter on the most mystical of adventures. Experience what and who they encounter as they are taken away from wartime Britain to a mysterious faraway land ruled by the White Witch. Will good triumph over evil? Will it always be winter, never Christmas? Based on the novel by C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a classic family favourite that PYT are delighted to be bringing to life this Christmas.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe runs for 9 performances from Tuesday 17 – Sunday 22 December at Petersfield Festival Hall. Priority booking opens on Monday 11 November and tickets for the general public will be available from Friday 22 November. Tickets will be available in person at One Tree Books and online.

Weekly Winners

By Uncategorized

Would you like to help a local charity and have a chance of winning a jackpot of your own?


Why not join Weekly Winners – PYT’s major fundraising scheme to raise funds for the PYT Bursary.


We are hoping that one high profile fundraising scheme will be more beneficial than an endless stream of different smaller events. By paying via Standing Order there’s no fuss involved and you get the satisfaction of helping a local charity without really having to do very much. Unlike national schemes, there’s also a much higher chance of you winning something!

The funds raised will be for the PYT Bursary which is designed to assist members who may not otherwise be able to participate in PYT activities due to financial barriers. These bursaries will cover up to 100% of the fee for these activities and each application will be carefully assessed on a case by case basis. In order to apply for the Bursary members need to request an application pack as detailed on our ‘Join Us’ page.

Without Weekly Winners subscribers we would be unable to offer this support. If there is any surplus income it will be used towards our creative programme which will benefit all PYT members.

Please click on the button below to learn more about how it works and how to apply.

Guys and Dolls

By Project Archive

This September PYT are presenting Frank Loesser’s celebrated musical comedy Guys and Dolls. This sizzling, New York tale of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers – plus one missionary – features some of Broadway’s greatest show-stoppers, including Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat and My Time of Day.

Join the teenagers of PYT as they roll the dice and fall in love under the bright lights of Broadway. They will take you on a toe-tapping journey, through cafes of Havana, via Salvation Army meetings and even into the sewers of New York City, to discover if gambling on love really does pay off.

Performances: 18-23 September

Venue: The Festival Hall, Petersfield

Box Office: One Tree Books from Friday 24 August
