Trafalgar Square

A cast of thousands
Over 1,500 young actors and performers are expected to take part in God Save the Teen, descending upon Trafalgar Square in a mammoth live theatre event. A string of performances will be staged throughout the day, keeping the crowds entertained in energetic, vibrant style.

Theatre fun at Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square will be transformed into a large-scale theatre space in the biggest event ever organised by the National Youth Theatre in its 50 year history. God Save the Teen has been written by the BBC's Flash Mob Opera and Stephen Powell, and is directed by Paul Roseby with a team of National Youth Theatre directors. The Square will be completely taken over by the event, which presents live theatre in a vibrant flash mob atmosphere.

God Save the Teen finale
The day will begin with a parade to Trafalgar Square at 12pm, following which National Youth Theatre actors will start performing. Performances will start off small and understated, gradually growing in scale until a huge finale at 8pm, in which Trafalgar Square will be transformed into a typical teen bedroom in a blaze of fire, light and music.

Celebrating the teen
All Londoners are invited to join in the fun and witness an ambitious, exciting cultural project. Whilst celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary of the National Youth Theatre the event will also make pertinent points about what it is to be a teenager and the transition to adulthood.

God Save the Teen takes place at Trafalgar Square on Saturday 9th September. The event runs from 12pm – 8pm and is free to attend. Nearest tube: Charing Cross.
