Acting Workshop

18 Apr 2021

Join us for an exclusive in-college event on Sunday 18th April for a day of acting workshops with a twist from looking at why a classic is still contemporary and why the new kid on the block is set to become a classic.

Hosted by our expert lecturers, these workshops will provide insight into what the next three years of your life could like look – as well as your future acting career.
