Build your child’s confidence, boost their creativity, and help them make new friends! Our after-school workshops in Hackney provide a fun and safe place for your child to develop the performance skills for stage, and the character skills for life. Our expert practitioners will bring out the best in your child through drama, singing and dance.

Gorgeous green spaces: Need the kids to let off steam? We love Hackney Downs Park for its wide-open space, great children’s playground and the festival which brings music, food and colour. Walk south from the River Lea towpath, past brightly-painted barges, and you’ll find Millfields Park on one side and Hackney Marshes on the other – no marshes of course, just wild nature and an incredible 88 football pitches. Who needs the countryside?
Activities galore: Enjoy the colourful chaos of soft play centre Kidzmania or the soothing historic surroundings of The Round Chapel, which hosts everything from gigs to Santa’s grotto- and our very own ShowKids Performing Arts workshops on Mondays from 4-6pm. There’s always the lovely Hackney Picturehouse close-by too.
Food, glorious food: If it’s Saturday head to Chatsworth Road Market to treat your taste buds to a trip around the world via its eclectic food stalls – Vietnamese pho, Greek kebabs, Scottish cheese toasties, French pastries and much more. We love Jim’s Café because it’s child-friendly with high-chairs for the little ones, and its burgers are up there with the best!
Shopping local: It’s so easy to support local businesses in Clapton. We recommend Palm 2 – the shop that seems to have everything – or Casey’s Deli for fresh produce from the local area. And if you need to pick up a present we can’t resist a browse in Triangle to see its cute kids toys and organic clothes.
