No mistakes,
only gifts.

The supportive and safe environments encouraged by our improv comedy workshops and classes are the perfect place for anyone to have fun, create scenes and characters and surprise themselves by what they're capable of.

Whether you have an urge to perform on stage, or just like the idea of meeting some lovely people and having a go - improv can be liberating, confidence building and just plain fun. Oh and we usually go to the pub afterwards, of course we bloody do. In the slightly misquoted words of Alan Partridge, JOIN US!
