'I am delighted to be District64's Patron and to support their work and purpose. It's such a joy to see young people using their creativity within the Arts in such a powerful and positive way- to elicit change and inspire conversation- about the important issues we all face in the world. District64 is such an exciting and talented young company and I am proud to be District.'

Inspiring the next generation of young performers...
The demands of the acting industry are ever-changing and highly pressured. The skills required and the experiences needed to succeed make it seem an even more daunting world to break into than ever before.
District64 was created to build a highly creative, inspiring and playful environment in which young people can hone their skills in a safe space, whilst still getting the experience of working in professional environments both on stage and in front of the camera.
We offer a wide range of acting training workshops for ages 8-20 year olds. Whether you are interested in one-off workshops on Screen Acting, Drama School and Audition Preparation or something more specialised like Stage Combat or Puppetry, we can offer first class training.
With coaching, tuition and guidance from highly passionate and experienced industry professionals, we aim to give young people the chance to work on their own process as an actor and performer, as well as collaborating creatively with others to create unique, passion driven theatre.
"Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous"
