Our workshops can explore any theme with a variety of different art forms.
If you have an idea, or a group to provide for, please get in touch.
Working with the National Theatre on their acclaimed production of War Horse helped us engage with over 2,000 pupils, parents and community groups in Brent. The War Horse programme included a CPD training session for teachers with the NT and Imperial War Museum, a Community Day at the theatre, a devised piece ‘No Man’s Land’ with Brent Youth Theatre, free Page-to-Stage workshops and our incredible two schools-only performances for state school children in the borough supported by the Trust, the NT and John Lyon’s Charity. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with the schools’ performances getting mentions in local press, and even in OFSTED reports.
Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre opened in July 2019 with Dinosaur World Live. The auditorium and foyer resembled Jurassic Park as huge dinosaur puppets roamed at their leisure in the foyer and auditorium. To give the audience a chance to feel part of their world, we offered free dinosaur mask making workshops in partnership with Abundance Arts leading to the “discovery” of 900 previously unseen species. The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation also set up camp to discuss themes of extinction and to offer the opportunity for audience members to participate in the Pangolin Art Challenge.
On the 30th November 2019 we opened the doors of every space at Troubadour White City Theatre to West London Drama Training for a day of free musical theatre workshops for local schools and drama groups.
Using the musical Oliver! as our inspiration, 150 children aged 7-18 participated in singing, acting and dancing workshops across both auditoriums, the foyer, and even the restaurant in preparation for a showcase for family and friends on the main stage at White City Theatre.
Our very first project in July 2019 was in partnership with Elephant West on an exhibition of twenty-two local artists’ works selected from 74 entries from an open call for photographers and digital artists. The open call asked for entries that celebrated the local area and its community.
This was an important way of opening the doors of White City Theatre to the local community. The exhibition opened at Elephant and then moved to our exhibition space in the theatre.
The works was displayed in the foyer of White City Theatre throughout the summer.
Following the government’s latest advice on coronavirus we are cancelling all planned workshops and activities in order to keep the wonderful people we work with safe and healthy. But we’re not going to let a little thing like not being able to leave the house prevent us from making theatre and the arts accessible to all. It’s just going to be a bit tricker this way. We are busying ourselves with research and ideas sessions to find ways of using digital platforms to keep the world engaged and entertained and will be announcing our plans here soon. Stay safe everyone.
Ever wanted to be in a band, but not sure how to start?
Unfortunately the coronavirus has pressed pause on this project for now, but we will back up and running before you know it, which gives you plenty of time to get some practice in at home.
The Pop up Band is open to anyone who has some basic musical knowledge and wants to jump in on vocals, guitar, bass or keys. With separate sessions for under 18s and over 18s every week, it’s a great chance to start your musical career, or just jam with some like minded musos.
These sessions are brought to you by Musicus and take place at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre. For more information, or to sign up for when we kick off again with a vengance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit MusicusUK.com
