Discovering & making theatre
Exploring creativity through discovering and making theatre is the perfect way for young people to begin to developing skills that will see them excel in later life. Not only will they gain confidence in expressing themselves but they’ll also become leaders, creators and imaginative team players.
This weekly class from Nottingham’s international theatre company will see participants gain knowledge and understanding of different theatrical forms from throughout theatre history. They’ll practically develop performance skills, experience the many opportunities the arts can provide, explore plays, create their own work inspired by the world around them and, most of all, have fun!
Map showing N_SPACE:
Landmarks: The venue is round the corner from Nottingham Women’s Centre, and opposite the Friends’ Meeting House.
Nearest tram stop: “Nottingham Trent University“. All trams passing through the city centre will stop here – you don’t need to be on a particular line. Tram information.
Nearest bus stop: The venue is less than half a mile from the Old Market Square, and a similar distance from the Victoria Centre, putting it close to a large number of city centre bus stops.
If you’re getting the 28, 30, 31, 35 or 36, don’t go all the way in to the city, but get off at “Clarendon Street” bus stop on Talbot Street. Likewise, if you’re getting the 34, 77, 78 or 79, get off at “Wollaton Street” – or while that one’s unavailable due to building works, “Tollhouse Hill”.
- Onstreet parking on Clarendon Street: Zone 1, £1 per 30 mins.
- Talbot Street or College Street: 50p per 30 mins.
- As the tram stop is close, it’s worth considering one of the Park and Ride car parks.
