Down To Earth (D2E) is the Guildhall Arts Centre’s resident youth drama group. It’s a great place to hang-out, build confidence, make new friends and have fun, not forgetting having the chance to be a part of excellent productions in our theatre!
The Guildhall Arts Centre opened in 1991 and there’s been a vibrant youth drama scene here ever since. We’ve revamped the Guildhall’s Youth Theatre with a new name, logo and lots of new projects, hopefully making it bigger and better than ever! With our background based firmly in the professional arts industry, we can offer an exciting programme which develops creative and performance skills and offers members the opportunity to learn technical skills, review professional shows, be involved in community arts projects and take part in a full-scale show.
Based within The Guildhall Arts Centre itself, D2E is the only youth drama group in town with direct access to a professional working theatre! On top of all that, it’s a great place to hang-out, build confidence, make new friends and have fun!

What happens when I come along to my first meeting?
D2E is really relaxed and fun, so there’s no reason to be nervous! Group leader Jade will ask you to fill out a form so that we have got your contact details and know a bit about you, and then you’ll be introduced to the rest of the group and play a few games to get everyone warmed up – so make sure to wear loose clothing so you’re comfortable! You might want to bring a bottle of water along too.
If I join D2E, what do I get to do?
