WANT TO GIVE UP THE DAY JOB?
We’ll take you from start to Star!
We are a new creative-retail-space-agency (the first of its kind, we think, though we took inspiration from Warhol’s factory) specialising in the performing arts. We exist to give opportunity and voice to the residents of Morecambe and district with a particular focus on the West End.
We host courses and events for people to develop skills and build experience and craft alongside award-winning artists. We have a debating society, a book club and chess club to develop and hone the mind. Stand-up workshops, Storytelling workshops, writing for performance workshops and a community theatre company to provide a one-stop shop for everyone to develop their natural talents.
Aside from our themed shop and exhibition space, we have monthly nights; comedy, storytelling, theatre, for our members to show works in progress.
And we have our established showcase festivals across the calendar year. Approx one every 12 weeks for our members to aim towards developing full shows for, with our help, guidance and support.
Our Morecambe Fringe, Fringemas Fringe, Solo Fest, Comedy Fest and Spoken Word Festivals are platforms for our members to showcase work alongside national and internationally acclaimed artists.
We have strong links to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where every year we shall take a crop of shows we believe will garner reviews and national and international interest.
We also provide a professional tour booking service to sell our shows on, booking national tours.
We already have a rosta of internationally acclaimed, seasoned artists for our graduated members to join.
