who we are and what we do

act up was created by Gemma Lloyd in the Summer of 1999.

Everything is run by experienced professionals, expert in their field, so it’s not about teaching but sharing their skills with you.  We’re not concerned with how many qualifications you have, we want to know who YOU are.

act up offers to anyone aged 18+ short, part-time acting courses, communication training, mentoring and careers advice to actors.

We also offer courses in writing and producing as well as Love Art, classes in art for children and adults.

act up has also collaborated with charities to encourage further people to engage with the arts and is something we’re passionate about developing.

Gemma also runs act up‘s boutique agency, works as a producer  in the film, dance and theatre industry and offers consultancy to start up art organisations, those seeking funding or anyone that needs support in their career.

She actively encourages new ideas, support and cross collaboration, works as an artist in her own right so may just get you….

So ask her a question, dare you.
