This is a free event for improvisers, improv groups, people who run improv nights, writers, sketch groups and more to meet each other, share what they are up to and see if they could work & play together.
A chance to work together on the future of London’s rapidly growing improv scene.
These nights have been very successful in the past at getting people together to form new improv groups, and also at getting new nights started.
We have an additional focus this year on improving the diversity of the UK improv scene, with a free workshop from Shem Pennant.
Everyone is welcome to come along, it’s very informal and open to all.
