“The Playing Space is brilliant!!! My children have attended for several years now… The classes have made a huge difference to my son, who is now a much more confident performer. The class my children are in recently performed at the Bull Theatre as part of the drama festival. This was a wonderful opportunity to perform on a real stage, and all children rose to the challenge brilliantly, which is testament to the great teaching they have received. My children have worked with a variety of teachers, all of whom have been fabulous, each bringing their unique style, but all delivering quality drama lessons that are a credit to The Playing Space and remain true to the ethos of a child-centred drama class that, above all, is fun! I cannot recommend The Playing Space highly enough.”
