A raffle for charity and we will be selling food from around the world. Our whole group will be divided into 4 groups and will each get to perform in one of the shows. As there will be less students in each show, the students will each get to showcase more of their work including festival and exam pieces if they wish too. The Festival will celebrate our 5 years and focus on plays, music and characters from countries around the world. We have decided to do a show at The Hippodrome every other year.

BREAK UP FOR SUMMER: Saturday 14th July 2018

Reminder about Fees

I have had to make some payment changes for the next academic year September 2017. I have not put my prices up for 4 years but due to hire charges at all venues I have had to put up my fees to £6 for an hour session.

Term 2 is a 7 week term.

Fees will be paid 7 x week termly for ALL venues. This includes the EAD.


£42 for all students EXCEPT Under 9’s Friday 3.45-4.30pm: £38.50 (£5.50 for their shorter session), Over 13’s Girls Friday 7.15-8.45: £48 (£7 for their longer session).

I’m afraid I am going to have to get stricter about payment as this year I received too many wrong cheques, and some very late payments and in a few cases no payment. Some groups have started charging late payment, I really don’t want to do this, its not in my or our groups nature, so please be respectful and follow the steps below.


TERM 2: PLEASE PAY BY 30TH OCTOBER by BACS OR handed to me in cash on the first lesson of each term. NO CHEQUES AS I AM STILL GETTING WRONG TITLE ON THE CHEQUE.
