Lockdown Legends: Weekly challenges for kids from York Theatre Royal

York Theatre Royal might be closed, but they want to help your kids get creative during the lockdown. That’s why they’ve launched the #lockdownlegendschallenge, a weekly theatrical challenge to take part in while we’re all at home.

Every Monday they’ll launch a new Lockdown Legends Challenge on their Twitter and Facebook pages. It’s open to all ages, so get everyone involved if you can (even your cat, dog or guinea pig). Send your response to and they’ll share them on their social media throughout the week. You’d even be in with a chance to win a prize!

Challenge 1: One Minute Play

Create a play, do some comedy, perform a monologue, tell a story, or make up a show. But it can only be one minute long! Let your imagination run wild and, most importantly, have fun. You can post your video on YouTube and send a link to  or send themyour video file to that email address. Remember to get consent from your parent/guardian before sending in your video.
