Our aim is to give participants in our workshops a safe space to improvise and unleash their creative side.
We usually begin with exercises to fire up our imaginations and warm up our voices. We then play games designed to build scenes and flex our story-telling muscles.
Sessions focus on applying the principles of improvisation, which are to:
- embrace the idea
- give ideas a chance

You could come along for the transferable skills mentioned in the article, but most of us are just in it for a damn good giggle!
Improshrews takes place every first Wednesday of the month at the same time and place. The cost per two hour session is just £5 but, if you haven't been before and want to find out more, the first session is FREE.
