History

Y Touring was the first company to work in the arena of health, sex education and science ethics. Y Touring has continually explored its mission statement with work suitable for students, teachers and professionals alike. In 1995 Y Touring introduced the Theatre of Debate® concept. Each Theatre of Debate® project consists of a play created to engage the target audience in an informed debate about a specific subject. The play is followed by a live debate between the actors in character and the audience. The development of each Theatre of Debate® project begins with a workshop bringing playwrights, experts and members of the target audience together to creatively explore the chosen subject.

Advantages of studying here

As part of its Theatre of Debate® programme, Y Touring applies its extensive presentation experience and skills to regular public speaking courses, aimed at arts professionals and the business community alike. Y Touring delivers its courses in a supportive atmosphere to allow each individual to acquire the techniques and develop the confidence needed for effective and compelling public speaking.Courses are run at a central London YMCA arts venue, based at King's Cross.
