Occasionally we have visiting workshop leaders to bring in different skills.

Members take it in turns to run workshops, on a range of practical skills, drama games and exercises, themes and plays. For information call 0151 733 9606.

We also have a play reading group who meet regularly to discuss ideas for new plays, on a separate evening to the workshops.

Workshops now take place at 13 A Hope Street. The entrance to the building is from the back, via Arrad Street at the back of Everyman Theatre. This is the road next to the Casa pub. Please ring the bell, there is a porter letting people in. It may get cold there, so bring a fleece!

Since we will now need to pay venue hire, we have agreed to charge 1.00 per person per workshop. Those who can afford to pay more are invited to do so.We can make special arrangements for those who cannot afford this.
