The cost for the first term is £35. From summer term onwards, the term will comprise of more sessions.

We are running a FREE taster session on Wednesday 7 February, 4.30-5.30pm for anyone interested in joining the group. The taster session will give participants a chance to meet Lucie and the Octagon team, familiarise themselves with the Octagon space and see if the drama sessions are a good fit for their needs. The session will involve drama games and creative exercises. We ask that anyone who wants to join the group attends this taster beforehand.
