Learning & Performance

School Holiday Projects

We run a variety of intensive, week-long, theatre-making projects for young people aged 11-14 years during school holidays; an opportunity to work with our professional tutors in a fun and friendly environment to develop new performance skills and create a piece of theatre from scratch in just five days. These projects are open to anyone, with no experience required.


Thank you for a great week – our daughter was really excited about it and you didn’t disappoint. She gains so much from her NYC workshops – we’re lucky to have found you all!

Arts Award Projects

Arts Award is a way for young people to turn their creative interests and activities into a nationally-recognised qualification, and as an accredited Arts Award centre we’re delighted to be introducing week-long, theatre-making projects with the added bonus of a certificate to take home at the end. For more information about Arts Award check out the Arts Award website.


Our son thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, made some new friends and wants to do it all again! And we thought the final production was really impressive. So thanks to you and the team for all your hard work and inspiration.

Performance Academy

A partnership with Exeter College, this project offers a cohort of gifted and talented BTEC & A’level students the chance to work with a range of professional artists and theatre-makers to develop new skills, gain insights into careers within the performing arts, and create and perform new work on stage at the Northcott Theatre.

This project is only open to Exeter College students.
