18th December

Improv Theatre Workshop

A class for all levels (most of us are beginners at the moment) consists of games and scenes all improvised by the people that come along. Sometimes it ends up a bit mad but sometimes you can be surprised by the theatre that comes out of nowhere. We start off every class with warm ups and progress depending upon how we all feel and mostly just have a laugh with a few drinks.  Plus it is a good way of meeting new people. It is completely FREE but everyone pays £1 for the use of the room.  No pressure to perform first time, you can just see what we are about and how the classes run.  If you would like more information, contact Monty on 07865 424682


Tickets: £1.00

Start Time: 7 pm

Women and The Arts

Excited to be hosting an evening that, to put it bluntly, seeks to gather the creative women of Bath and basically get us all in the same place so we can connect, discuss ideas and hopefully grow a little bit as creatives and as females! So if you are a woman and, especially if you are creative (in whatever shape or form) I would love to see you there! You could be a writer, dancer, painter, artist, musician, designer, healer, actor...the list goes on!! Bring your story and yourself! Hearing one another's stories and aspirations can be SOOO inspiring and generate further productivity - who knows, perhaps this could lead to collaborations & potentially grow into a semi-regular thing! The night will also include live music by the incredibly talented Saskia Maxwell, Signe Marie Håland & Lauren Nicole

Tickets: Free

Start Time: 7.30pm
