University of York Students' Union (YUSU)

Technical Theatre

Hi there! Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the theatre? Do you want to be a part of some of the biggest events on campus? If so then come and join us!

We are a society at the University of York for anyone with an interest in stage lighting and sound, whether you have had previous experience in shows or have never even set foot in a theatre.

We hold weekly tech training for anyone who wants to get started, and we provide opportunities to get involved in a wide range of events including shows from The Gilbert and Sulivan Society, CHMS, PantSoc and OperaSoc, in venues such as Central Hall and the Dixon Studio.

For more information, visit our website at, or check out our Facebook page. Once you have become a member, please also join our Facebook Group to get updates on tech training sessions and to sign up for opportunities to get involved in shows.
