Introductory courses
"‘I learnt so much at The Workshop, met inspiring people and felt confident and ready to go on to professional work after finishing. It was through The Workshop that I got my first television acting job on a BBC drama, 'Dad', playing opposite Richard Briers. The Workshop gave me a grounding in acting for which I am forever indebted!’"
