Friday Group is a flexible learning environment for young people with identified learning needs.
It is focussed on developing creative professional skills through real-world creative projects.


The Friday Group group comes together every Friday from 10am till 2pm. The sessions are a mix of non-verbal physical theatre, delivering workshops and creative projects. We do this through group exercises as well as supporting individuals in their personal development.


What do we do?


We make a bonkers range of drama & film projects in partnership with theatre and heritage companies, like the Birmingham REP, Birmingham Hippodrome, Black Country Living Museum and the Canal & River Trust. Here’s a little example of what we get up to:
