New Season, New Look

Welcome to our brand new website!

Did you know that Zest has been running since 2007? That means next year will be our 10th Birthday! Over that time we've changed a lot; we've grown, innovated and created new standards in theatre for young people. But one thing that's not really changed is our logo... until now! 

As we embark on this new season, with a national tour of our new show Thrive; we thought it would be the perfect time to unveil our new look! 

Over the last 12 months we've been doing lots of audience development work across the country to find out more about our audience. As part of this we started asking those (sometimes difficult) questions about ourselves as a company. What matters to us? What do we want to say? What is the essence of Zest – the bit that makes us unique? (By the way - it’s you!) Because our priority has always been connecting with young people, and young people’s culture is so fast-paced, we need to constantly make sure we are remaining relevant and interesting to them. Designed to reflect Zest's energetic and immersive approach, our new branding sets us up for our 2nd decade of making theatre.

But we couldn't rebrand without refreshing our website too! Our new site is clean, fresh and packed full of content. Browse through the pages of our work to watch videos, look through photos, listen to soundtracks and book tickets! Plus, you can visit our blog to look behind the scenes at Zest, or join our Young Collaborators group to have your input on how we make our work

During the upcoming Autumn season there's lots of opportunities to see us in action or get involved: Thrive will be touring theatres across the country, we'll be looking for love with Boy Meets Girl in Lincoln and we'll be kicking off our brand new 2030 programme for young people in Grimsby.

As always, we also have loads of stuff in the pipeline (some of which we'll be working on secretly during the Autumn), so keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates coming very soon.
