how much experience do i need?
Both new and veteran improvisers are very welcome. We have a range of beginner to advanced classes and lots of different styles to try, so there will be something to suit everyone.

Both festivals have an arrival time of 5pm on Wednesday and a finishing time of 4pm on Sunday.

how are the groups chosen for the march intensive?
Based on your CV and/or our previous experience of teaching you, we carefully match personalities and experience levels to create a challenging, fun and interesting group class for everyone.
We have accommodation on the ground floor and can accommodate wheelchair-users, however, class choices will be limited to those on the ground floor.
Unfortunately, Thorngrove House is an old building on multiple floors with no lift and we teach on three floors.
Do get in touch.

We have an early-bird discount if you book a few months in advance (see the Retreat / Intensive pages). You can apply to our Jason Chin Scholarship for a full or part-funded place. Occasionally we offer discounts to big groups coming together or to improv companies; get in touch if you think this might apply to you.
