What we offer

Happy Kings & Queens

The Happy Kings and Queens Drama group is focused on fun, inclusive, member led drama activities, with at least one show a year.

When: 5-6pm every Thursday
Where:St. Barnabas Church, Temple Road, Epsom, KT19 8HA
Price: £3.50 (includes entry to Kites Club)

Each week the group meets to do workshops, which help improve their skills as actors, help deal with complex life events, or are part of developing their annual production.

Members of The Happy Kings and Queens pitch for the show they would like to perform and then the group vote for their favourite to produce that year.  As part of this, the group enjoys a theatre trip to see someone else’s interpretation of their chosen show, or just to get a feel for and learn from professional theatre.

The Happy Kings and Queens are a hard-working and supportive group, who practice team work each week.  Joining in with drama is great for building confidence, meeting new people, being creative and expressing yourself.

Every drama session starts with a warm-up that everyone is encouraged to join in with.  This changes each week and could be involve improvisation, story-telling, physical theatre and movement, or role-playing.
Members of the group are encouraged to share their ideas, support each other, and be involved in all aspects of theatre.  That said, depending on what you’re comfortable with, everyone is welcome to opt in or out of different parts of the workshop so they enjoy themselves as much as possible.

Everyone is welcome to join The Happy Kings and Queens Drama Group, so if it sounds like fun to you get in touch!

Swag Club

Swag Club is a student-led evening social club that meets monthly to have fun, hang out and party!

Meeting up with friends can be difficult plan; trying to find a time and place that everyone can get to is hard.  Swag Club gives students, ex-students and other young people the opportunity to meet up outside of college hours and away from home.

Every week students at the NESCOT PFLAW Department meet with us for the Pizza Planning Group (there’s planning and pizza) sessions. To begin with they came up with ideas for the branding and name of Swag Club. They then went on to plan the types of activities and food they wanted for the club, as well as advertising Swag Club.  Any student who is part of the PFLAW department is welcome to join the Pizza Planning Club and help shape and organise Swag Club.  It’s a chance to build confidence, learn and practice planning skills, socialise and make new friends.  It’s also great to have on your CV and we are happy to write references for anyone involved in the group.

Swag Club runs once a month and is a vibrant and exciting place to hang out with friends, make new ones, and try new things.  On the night activities include:

  • Dj-ing and music
  • Open mic
  • Tuck shop
  • Selfie corner
  • Wii gaming

So if you or someone you care about is 18-30ish and would like to come along, get in touch!
