Ensemble Timetable

We provide our activities all year round

Sessions during Easter, Summer and Christmas school breaks will be optional and you will only be charged for the ones that members actually attend. Easter and Summer are the times we would expect to provide larger additional sessions such as workshops and masterclasses alongside the regular ensemble sessions.

All our ensemble sessions take place at The Hive Creative Arts Centre at Manor CE Academy in their wonderful in-house theatre. The theatre is also where we will hold many of our public concerts.
