At Wildcard we believe everyone should have the chance to be creative. We want all our courses to be as open and inclusive as possible to anyone that wants to take part. We are aware that the cost of workshops and regular training is a key barrier in our industry for many people.

With this in mind, we are pleased to be able to offer 2 free places on each course.

If you are interested, please email bursaries@wildcardtheatre.co.uk with the workshop title as the subject and tell us a bit about you and why you feel that this would help you.

Bursary places will be offered out no later than 2 weeks before the course begins.
