Full Circle

Full Circle is a friendly and welcoming group for anyone over 50 who’s interested in trying new things and meeting new people.

Full Circle meet on a fortnightly basis during term time for talks and activities relating to the theatre, the arts and the local area. Each session starts off with a talk, followed by two workshops, ranging from dance sessions to play readings to craft sessions and drama.

Sessions run from 10:30am –  2:15pm on alternate Tuesdays starting 14 January. 

Full Circle is £5 and includes a brew!

The group is for everyone aged 18+, including complete beginners. Over five sessions each term the group will work on different aspects of playwriting, including character, structure, dialogue, generating ideas, and developing a writing practice. Participants will work towards writing a full-length play by the end of the course, with a sharing and feedback in the summer term. You can drop-in to sessions as you choose, or you can attend the whole term; so whether you’ve got a work in progress that needs refining or you just want to develop your writing skills – Scribbles is for you!

The course is taught by local playwright Amie George. Amie is the writer and Co-Artistic Director of Rogue Bones theatre company. She was part of the Royal Court writers’ group in 2016, and has recently had two shows performed in the Coliseum’s studio.

This group runs fortnightly via Zoom on the following Wednesdays from 11am-1pm.
