Manchester Hub DramaAfter the successful launch of our new brother Drama School in Manchester, Manchester Hub Drama, we are very pleased to announce that we are launching a new range of adults acting classes later this month and in September 2014.

Our new drama school now has its own dedicated website over at, so please head over there to check it all out.

Manchester Hub Drama School offers a selection of acting courses for adults aged 18-99. Prices start as low as £12 per session (paid monthly) and our acting workshops are suitable for complete beginners through to advanced actors looking to build experience and stage credits for their Acting CV.


1.5 hour weekly PERFORMANCE and FEEDBACK classes (Beginners to Advanced). currently just £12 per session paid monthly in 4 week blocks (£48). This is an ongoing class.

In the Performance & Feedback classes we look at how to improve your technique. Each week you get to perform and get feedback. We often email out personally selected scripts each week for you to prepare and perform in your next session. Great for those looking for weekly challenges, the opportunity to create and perform a new character each week, improve your line learning ability and gain some constructive criticism. You will look at script analysis, monologue and duologue work, improvisation, character building and feedback and goals are tailored to your needs and ability. Suitable for beginners to advanced level. You will have regular (optional) opportunities to showcase yourself.

RUNS: Sunday 6pm-7.30pm. Monday 6.30pm-8pm. Tuesday 7.30pm-9pm  [READ MORE / APPLY NOW] JOIN NOW!

Manchester Theatre Acting Class

littlehub_dramaSCHOOL_square_logoUPDATE: Please note that the drama group has since evolved into “Manchester Hub Drama” acting school.

It’s official! This week we launched our new little brother company The Little Hub Drama School!

Strictly for Adults aged 18+, our Drama School is something a little different. When you become a member of the Little Hub Drama Group, you become part of a new company of actors working hard to be the best that they can be. There are opportunities to work as a company and produce shows for the more advanced members, and exciting beginners classes for those just starting out.

Our members (the Little Hubbers) receive fun yet professional standard theatre acting classes which work towards and orientate around public performances where you gain real stage experience! Your weekly group is your company and each Term you work together to perform a public small-scale production. In Term 1 our members also have the opportunity to showcase their skills in a mid-term showcase in Manchester city centre.
