We believe that play is transformative.
Play unlocks creativity and generates ideas. It encourages wonder and curiosity, connection and reflection. Play re-energises and reinvents, and allows us to see the familiar with fresh eyes.
Our workshops and events give adults space to rediscover the power of play.
Improv is a great way to get more play and laughter into your life, in a friendly, supportive environment:

"Playfulness opens you. It lightens your heart. It's a way of being - of being yourself, completely, and, if you feel like it, being more even than that." Bernie de Koven
