Opportunity: Battersea Arts Centre Drop in Thursdays

Battersea Arts Centre, south west London’s innovative performance venue, runs a great selection of Drop In workshops on a Thursday night split into two age groups. This is a great chance to try Theatre, Dance and Music without committing to something longer term. Though if you do enjoy it and put your all into at least 8 sessions, you’ll get the chance to join bigger projects throughout the year. Not bad huh? Go on. Give it a go!

Project Name: Homegrown Drop In Workshops

Company/Organisation Name: Battersea Arts Centre

Project Description/Aims: 

Whether you are interested in making friends and having fun, doing something creative or developing a career in the arts – BAC has something to offer you.

  • Take part in a theatre, music or dance workshop
  • The opportunity to perform in front of an audience
  • See a professional show
  • Enjoy performances in the café and meet lots of other creative young people in an inspiring environment.

The workshops are fun and are led by professional theatre-makers and musicians who will help you to develop your skills. In these sessions you will find out how you can get more involved in all areas of what BAC does including making shows, performing on stage, work experience placements, job opportunities, hiring rehearsal space and how you can go about developing your own ideas.

Anyone can be part of Homegrown – if you are a creative individual, someone who loves watching or taking part in performance, interested in building a career in the arts, or are just looking for a relaxed and friendly place to meet your friends, then Homegrown is for you.
