2022 Teen Gala


As the 2022 school year draws to a close, we’re looking forward to bringing back the glitz and glamour of the foil curtain and celebrating another huge year with the best and brightest teen voices.


Witness an inspiring line-up of young readers and performers, including the winner of the 2022 Plain English Speaking Award and the winner of the Kill Your Darlings School Writing Prize, alongside emerging comedians, actors and poets. We’re bringing you the most vibrant teen voices from a year spent showcasing exceptional new talent, alongside crowd favourites from previous galas. Be prepared to be uplifted – the future is in great hands.

Alongside the Gala event, teens have the opportunity to participate in a series of free workshops, designed to build onstage confidence, generate new writing and connect with publication opportunities.

The Wheeler Centre’s Teen Gala and workshop series is generously supported by George and Rosa Morstyn.
