Fun and flexible workshops with a different theme each week.

Each workshop starts with some fun and friendly warm ups to help you get back into things, then we’ll be looking at a different theme each week.

We’ll be playing a variety of fun exercises around the 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 in-between 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.

Covid Safety

We have kept class sizes low to ensure 2 metre distancing can stay in place. We have also redesigned games to make sure physically-distanced improv is still fun, friendly and playful! We also offer full flexibility on bookings to give you peace of mind when planning ahead.
