Drama classes at The Hub
 Fridays 4pm-6pm.
Georgina the Principal of the school says that “nothing is more rewarding than to have a
child start my classes as a very shy person who has little confidence, and even after one term, is able to speak more confidently and feel a sense of achievement”.  The Hub is a brilliant venue with lots of space for young people to express themselves. 

 Book a free trial session with Georgina by going to  http://www.helenogrady.co.uk
or phone 01308423591.
