See a show at The Y Theatre

With a professional programme of comedy, music, theatre, dance and spoken word, you’ll be blown away by a visit to Leicester’s oldest surviving theatre.

Get creative and get involved with theatre & arts

At The Y we are constantly looking for ways to work with and develop local creative talent and showcase new work, so if you are interested in writing, performing, exhibiting artwork or something behind the scenes we have several opportunities for you.

Create your own event using our spaces

From wine tasting to parties, workshops to charity events, we have a range of great spaces for hire.

Join a sports class or group

From our ever popular over 55’s table tennis club to Sunday church gatherings, there may be an activity for you!

Challenge yourself and raise money for The Y homelessness services. Zip down a 200m zip wire in the middle or Victoria Park, Leicester.

Support us through fundraising or volunteering

We need people like you to help us raise funds to give homeless young people a safe place to call home.  We are excited to launch two new events in 2017: the Leicester Skyline zip wire challenge and Leicester Legends Football match, plus there are lots of other ways to get involved.

Get advice from Moneywise Plus

If you are unemployed and would like help understanding and managing your money, you can contact Moneywise Plus, which is open to anyone in Leicester or Leicestershire.  The Y is a partner in this project, so if you are a resident or client of The Y you can also ask your keyworker for more information.
