Event Fallback Image

EXCEL Performance Festival is an opportunity to experience HE level workshops and performances at University Campus Oldham. There will be a range of student led workshops and performances to choose from alongside input from industry experts and professional actors who will be running master classes and sharing their experiences as part of an Industry Expert Panel. This is a great way to find out about what it is like to study performance at HE level and also gain insight into the Performance Industry. We already have some exciting news that Karen Henthorn, an actor from Coronation Street and East Enders will be joining us to run a Screen Acting masterclass; Sarah Emmott from Art With Heart will run a Theatre Making masterclass; and Samm Hewitt from Brit Theatre Company will be running a Musical Theatre masterclass. Our Industry Expert Panel will be made up of theatre makers, producers, professional actors, Equity representation, and professional practitioners. We have 60 places available each day.
