Graduation Ball

Optional Sunday Workshops

Photography Workshop

We will be learning the basics of advanced photography - considering the effects of the manual modes to change the aperture, shutter speed and ISO and how they affect the light captured by the camera. We will consider basic lighting and have a go at some portrait and landscape photography, with the aim of improving the photos that you take. If you have a camera that will let you change the aperture, shutter speed and ISO that would be helpful to bring but not necessary.

Medicine Workshop

This workshop will be useful to anyone considering studying Medicine in the future. Depending on the availability of our practicing doctors this may offer a practical session in the nearby hospital or a workshop on successfully applying to study Medicine and being a great doctor.

Musical Theatre Workshop

This workshop offers a unique chance to work with a professional West End performer on all aspects of musical theatre. Students will be given the chance to develop their own performance skills, such as singing technique, acting through music, and some basic dance. Students will gain both knowledge and skill, to give them that crucial edge in any future performance projects.

Your professor is a hugely experienced West End performer, who has appeared in many commercial hit shows for producers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cameron Mackintosh, and England's Royal National Theatre and recently performed as one of the principal roles in The Phantom of the Opera.
