Image is a black and white photo of two people. They are standing with their backs slightly to the camera, one in front of the other. The person at the front has their arms open and their head is pointing slightly up, with their eyes closed. The person behind has their arms by their side and is looking ahead. They both have long hair up in ponytails. Above the people are the words "In Year 10 or 11? Missing your GCSE drama classes?" The OmniArts logo is just below this, in the space where the first person's head is pointing. There is a black rectangle overlaying the legs of the two people, with the following words on it in white: "Join us, 2-3pm every Monday. Exercises, games, guidance & feedback on anything acting related, plus a chance to chat with professionals in the performing arts industry. Email becki@omniartsgb.co.uk for details." Underneath this, the words: "Sessions are currently being run on a donation basis." are in black.GCSE Drama

Set up during the UK lockdown, our GCSE Drama group is a place for anyone aged 14-16 to explore drama and performance outside of the school setting. It’s specifically aimed at people who want to do performing arts at college.

As with all our groups, this is a safe space for anyone to join, and as well as learning drama skills, this is also a group where members can talk about anything that is on their mind – from personal to current issues, and gives them a place to grow as people as well as performers.
