At The Drama Circle we offer the best professional training; encompassing all talents, ages and abilities. Whether you want to pursue a passion for performing, gain new skills, develop presentation techniques at the work place or try something new, we can help. Here at Mellor Village Hall we run Speech and Drama classes for all ages most evenings. These classes are designed to gain qualifications with The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), to compete in local Drama festivals and to perform in shows. They can also be tailored to any school/ work presentations or to develop new skills in performing. The aim of all the classes we teach is to develop and improve confidence of the individual both on and off stage.

Our Youth Theatre also runs from Mellor Village Hall on Monday evenings from 7- 8pm; this is open to any one between the ages of 7- 18. Here, we work as a cast to rehearse and perform a show in front of an audience at least once a year. We have just finished a hugely successful performance of 'A Christmas Carol' at Samlesbury Hall.

Pickle Ball   Weekly sessions on Friday between 2-4 pm.  Just come along and have a go - it is for everybody.

 Pickle ball was invented in America in 1963 and is now the fastest growing sport particularly in Florida USA. The game involves players using “paddles” to hit a plastic ball over a net similar to tennis but an inch or so higher. The court layout is similar to tennis but smaller.

The game is family orientated however more active players can take up the game if they wish. The game can be played inside on a badminton court as well as outside on a tennis court.

For more information please contact Kevan Dean [kevangdean@hotmail.com]
