Lantern Arts Hub - Daytime Classes

The Lantern Theatre and ACT Brighton have received funding from the Department for Culture and Health to create The Lantern Arts Hub and run a programme of daytime performing arts classes.

We are bringing our many years of expertise running professional actor training classes and courses to the Brighton community. These classes are open to the local community especially those who are in marginalised groups.

These low cost subsidised courses begin in September and there are 3 days of free taster sessions. Come and see what we are doing, visit our friendly café for more info.
