Edinburgh’s young people are going to have SO MUCH FUN this Autumn! Activities for all aged 3-17yrs – build confidence, make friends and have a blast! Explore drama with no commitment thanks to our taster sessions. Tasters are available in the first three weeks then classes are closed for the term so we recommend you book as early as you can. Book now to see what all the fuss is about!

Autumn Term 2021 will take place in person in our Bellfield venue in Portobello and outside in the Bellfield garden, weather permitting. (Film classes and Drama Hub will remain online). 

There is a one-off £5 (separate from your taster fee) Covid supplement charge for all new and returning students to cover the extra cost of cleaning and staff throughout the term. 

Masks in Class: Students age 12yrs and up will be required to wear a face covering (unless exempt) and maintain 1m distance, in line with the guidance in schools. Please talk to you child about this before booking.

We hope you will join us to continue the learning, the laughs and the creative connection!
