In line with Government advice we are not currently running any of our workshops, sessions or events. The welfare of our participants, audiences, artists and staff is paramount, and we also want to support the valiant efforts of our health service. Our latest announcement can be found here.

Whilst we are working on ways that we can support our community, here are some sites, resources and links that you may find useful.

We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming our audiences back as soon as we can.

The workshop was great – students and staff found it engaging and interesting, and from a teacher’s point of view, the organisation was very efficient and stress free!

Theatre Day Teacher

The Theatre Day gave us understanding of the plot, how an actor approaches the role, the way technology impacts an audience, and insight into character relationships. We were very impressed.
