New places available for Tabard Drama group

Thank you for your interest in the Unicorn Theatre’s Tabard Gardens community-based Drama group.

The Unicorn Theatre is a leading children’s theatre based on Tooley Street, London Bridge.

The Drama group is offered FREE to children living on the Tabard Gardens council estate and to children from local neighbouring council estates close to Tabard Gardens. The Drama group runs term-time after school one afternoon a week at St George the Martyr Church, Borough High Street, SE1. The Unicorn Theatre runs community projects throughout the year and we want to run a community project that connects with a local community near to our theatre.

Children do not need previous Drama experience – we would love to meet some children who want to give it a go for the first time. There are so many positive benefits in taking part in a regular Drama group including- social benefits, developing confidence and communication skills, learning to think creatively, and learning about theatre arts for self-expression.

The group runs term-time weekly on Tuesdays from 16.30 – 17.45 in the Crypt at St George the Martyr Church. The group is open to 8-11 year olds.

Term dates for spring: Tuesday 17th January – Tuesday 28th March 2016 (the group will not run on Tuesday 14th Feb during half-term)

The children will also be invited to attend free theatre trips at the Unicorn Theatre to extend their experience and enjoyment.

In order to register your interest – please contact Sally Pembroke with your name, child’s name, child’s age (D.O.B), full address and how you heard about the opportunity.  Please note, you need to book via Sally and fill out application forms before your child can start attending the drama group. Please check you are eligible within the criteria or contact Sally. Please note there are limited places and places will be reserved on a first come first serve basis.

Look forward to hearing from you!
