Young People help run the Bizarre Bazaar

Step back into a peculiar past, return to an era of the fancy faire!

Discover the factual and fantastical as we delve into the history of Leicester’s oldest theatre, built in 1900. Join in the celebration with a splendid array of themed shows at The Y Theatre’s Victorian Bazaar.

This event was created by our Y Heritage Project in partnership with Enter Edem Theatre Company as part of Heritage Open Days 2022. Thousands of venues across the UK are opening their doors, so you can visit places you never thought possible.

Please book your FREE place in advance, as last year sold out! Join us at 11am, 2pm or 4.30pm each day.  The 4.30pm session is perfect for families looking for an after school interactive heritage experience.  We suggest an hour to make the most of your visit.

Young People Get Involved!

Josh, a resident at The Y, is Assistant Director of our Bizarre Bazaar, working alongside Enter Edem and other young people to create a Victorian summer fete with characters, games and a few surprises.  As part of the Y Heritage jobs project a marketing and social media post was also created for a young person. Our visitors will see YMCA history through the eyes of a younger generation!
