The Y Theatre is a bustling live performance venue based in Leicester city centre. Our eclectic programme includes music, comedy, theatre, dance, new work and family shows. The 300 seat theatre also comfortably hosts candle-lit cabaret style events and standing gigs. Built in 1900, The Y is the oldest surviving Victorian theatre in Leicester.
We support the development of new, emerging & established performance, within an open and welcoming theatre, creating a hub of activity for local artists.
The Y is also a vibrant charity offering supported accommodation for young people aged 16-25yrs, who have no safe place to call home. We provide individual support and guidance from a range of specialist workers and partners to help them move on to independence. We actively fundraise through the year to ensure our services continue to support young people in Leicestershire.
