Plus we’ll signpost you to the next steps and the resources available to help you further your filmmaking. "...My 15 year old daughter and I attended a one day film day course. We had a fabulous time. Alistair Campbell was an amazing patient teacher guiding us through the idea process and letting us be in control of our own film story. My daughter and I loved the day. For me it has opened up so many (Filmmaking) ideas that I can use within my own business." Jackie | June 2017 Please note that this course predominantly for adults however it is suitable for those aged 14 + with parental consent. Our Mini Film school activities are aimed at those aged 13 - 16 and would be more beneficial to younger participants as the course is specifically designed to be assessable to that age group.

Running Time - 50 minutes This is a special performance of the musical before it goes to Edinburgh Fringe Festival. EnigmaTheatreUK are a new theatre company from Weston-super-Mare.
