Calling all performers! Are you part of a drama group, do you enjoy telling stories or reading poetry, or have you a dance or movement piece you would like to share?

Performance and Media Training Course
For 9 months, the 10 trainees on our Performance and Media Course run by Ray Jacobs and funded by the ESF, have learned amazing new skills.
Trainees have performed with and without scripts, made radio jingles, interviewed the public and even presented Arty Party radio programmes!
The trainees now have lots of confidence as well as experience of working in performance and media.
