Open Days

Centre for Advanced Training Open Days are now closed until autumn term 2018.

Open days take place in February, and although not essential, we recommend that anyone interested in applying for an audition place attends an open day first. The sessions will consist of 90 minute practical classes in the studio (parents are not able to observe these sessions), information talks, tours and some observation of current CAT students. We invite and encourage all parents/carers and students to attend with their child.

Please note: booking is required for participants only, parents/carers do not need to book and pay for a place to attend the Open Day.

Once you have attended an open day you can decide if you want to audition.  We do not give feedback after these taster sessions, these are purely for you to find out about the programme before applying.
