Holiday Workshops

We are very excited that this Summer 2018 we shall again be able to offer our Three Day Dramatic Combat course. We are so lucky to have Dean Forster return from his busy filming schedule to teach a new set of aspiring action heroes some genuine stage and screen fight techniques. Dean is a hugely qualified Stunt Co-ordinator/Performer, with The British Stunt Register, with three Film and Television Industry Awards on his mantle piece.  Film credits include WONDER WOMAN, STAR WARS, BRIDGET JONES’ DIARY (Hugh Grant’s Stunt Double!), THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM and HARRY POTTER. On TV Dean has worked on the sets of GAME OF THRONES, BROADCHURCH, HUMANS and SHERLOCK. His full list of credits is awesome.

AND our One Day Introduction to Shakespeare workshop is back and will be run by the brilliant Boost! Drama Teachers. See more below. Venue to be confirmed!

 What The Parents Said:

Amelie was still talking about the drama course today saying she was sad it was over and felt amazing doing the sword fighting. Both girls loved it. They have never ever loved a summer camp (always wanting to be at home) but were so happy to go and made friends and learnt a lot . They loved coming home and talking about Dean’s stories and what they have been doing . I really enjoyed watching them at the show although it was quite scary!
