During the school holidays the Headgate Theatre regularly runs musical theatre or drama workshops for those aged 8 to 16 years. Packed with fun, the workshops include the opportunity to learn performance skills, make new friends, and finish with a free performance for an invited audience.

Additionally, we set up one day or weekend events. Past workshops have covered such diverse topics as working in mask (with Vamos Theatre Company), exploring a Shakespeare text, Writing Comedy or Acting for Camera. We are currently developing our workshop programme for 2022, and are keen to hear from both facilitators and people in our acting community about topics that might provide development or be of interest in the future.

We also have plans for technical theatre workshops or talks with industry professionals and our own volunteer team will lead on site development for people registered with us as volunteers.
