Costume sessions at our youth theatre


OmniArts GB is a Hampshire-based, non-profit performing arts company committed to our vision of bringing the arts to everyone – no matter their age, ability, or background.

Clara, Evelyn and Evie having fun at Youth TheatreOmniArts was founded on the belief that everyone has the right to experience the joy and personal benefit that comes from the arts. We know that the performing arts are a fantastic way of building confidence, trying new things, and learning about yourself and others.

We are proud to offer opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds through our family of groups; from our music experiences for toddlers and youth theatre and arts awards groups for older children, all the way through life to our Music for the Mind group for the elderly. We also have our Generations group which brings together people of all ages to learn from each other and have fun together.
