“We all share an affinity for the arts”

This news story is from 25 June 2018.

27 musical theatre students from Guildford ran the “Nuts Challenge” in aid of NYAT’s work

The students competed in a 14 km mud run in Dorking in March 2017, and very kindly raised £2,500 to support our work – to help provide access to the arts for young people who would otherwise struggle to participate.

For those of you who don’t know what the Nuts Challenge is, it’s an assault course where runners encounter mud (lots of it), a water assault course, climbing, crawling and challenging obstacles all the way round. Not your average quarter marathon!

The challenge can’t have been easy – braving this tough obstacle course, along with some very cold and wet weather! They completed the course with a fantastic finish time of 4 hours and 32 minutes!

“We all share an affinity for the arts, and so feel strongly about helping talented young people gain access to theatre programmes, that they would otherwise be unable to afford. I hope we can raise as much money as possible.”

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our cause and thank you to these absolutely amazing students for all your fundraising efforts.
