• all new thursday drop-ins!

thursday evening improv drop-in

A different theme every week. A flexible and fun way to keep practicing improv.

Due to popular demand we are now running Thursday drop-in workshops in addition to our Monday drop-ins.

We’ll be looking at a different theme each week, playing a variety of fun exercises around that key theme and then putting it all together and having some fun improvising a variety of different show games, scenes and formats.

These are a great way to keep practicing improv after a course or inbetween courses. You can come to as many or as few drop-ins as you want, whatever fits in with your improv life!

If you haven’t done any improv or acting before it’s best to start with one of the Back To Basics workshops below, or one of our beginners improv classes or beginners improv courses first.

If you want to do a more thorough improv course take a look at our longer improv courses.
