After-school drama plans

Have your say

A theatre company has received nearly £3000 of funding to set up a series of after-school drama workshops.

Strange Town already offers weekly youth theatre classes and holiday courses at the Out of the Blue facility in Leith, as well as drama projects in schools across Edinburgh.

It has been awarded £2883 of support from the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership (LNP) to help it deliver a programme of after-school drama workshops in Leith primary schools.

The programme will provide 15 weekly drama sessions for pupils between primary three and primary seven.

The money supports a project manager, drama tutor and a tutor’s assistant.
