Lots of adult hands raised in the air


Our weekly adult programme provides opportunities to take part in acting, creative writing, script reading and more, to develop performance, confidence and public speaking skills as well as provide an opportunity to meet new people in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Our Adult Acting courses (over 18’s)  are open to new attendees 3 times per year.

Our Centre Stage programme (over 25’s) operates on an annual membership basis and can be joined at any time.


Our Adult Acting courses are delivered in blocks of 12 weekly sessions, 3 times per year and cost £95 per block. Suitable for anyone over the age of 19, of any skill or confidence level from absolute beginners to those brushing up on their rehearsal room practice.

Working with professional actors and directors, these dynamic sessions adapt to suit the needs of each person in the room.

All sessions are delivered on Wednesday evenings and our next term begins on 20th September and will run for 12 sessions over 13 weeks.

Centre Stage is open to all adults over the age of 25 and provides opportunities to take part in practical drama based activities on a weekly basis, supported by our in house Creative team and visiting artists. We are developing a creative community where skills are developed and stories are shared among like-minded people, where the principle focus is participating for fun and increased well-being.

Centre Stage is not about training actors, but instead using plays, scripts & performance to learn, discuss and share. Our Adult Acting evening classes are for those who wish to develop their skills in acting and run in termly blocks.

We have enjoyed welcoming new members into the building since September 2021 and whilst we know that starting something new can take time to build, we already have a strong membership base.
