YAFTA 10 Year celebration and Showcase

This year, the YAFTA Group celebrates our 10th anniversary and we’re doing it in style with a black-tie event at The Royal Armouries!

It’s hard to believe that what started as an idea to improve acting training provision in the North of the UK, has now, through 10 years of hard work, turned into one of the leading education providers of screen acting training in the country who have trained thousands of students.

We are incredibly proud of all of our students, tutors, industry professionals, agency actors and colleagues who have played a part in the growth of the YAFTA Group throughout the past 10 years.

To mark this special occasion, we are hosting a red carpet, black-tie dinner at The Royal Armouries, Leeds on 7th July.

This event is open to everyone, especially those who have ever been part of YAFTA, we hope you will celebrate this milestone with us at this special, glitzy, evening of celebration.
