Who we are

It is our belief that all of our students should be risk-takers, collaborators and entrepreneurs.

The Actors’ Institute is a centre for contemporary actor training. All of our classes are delivered by experienced practitioners and industry professionals, who provide students with the highest standard of training.


We believe that training is a life-long endeavour and we offer a range of courses and workshops to reflect this. Whether you’re looking for drama school preparation, advanced training and masterclasses or corporate training - we offer something for you.


Workshops take place at the Shoebox Theatre - our purpose built, fully equipped studio located in Swindon’s historic railway village.

With numerous public car parks nearby and only a 10 minutes walk from the Swindon train and bus stations, access is a breeze wherever you’re coming from.


Swindon is conveniently located on the M4 and is easily commutable  from Oxford, Bath, Bristol, Winchester, Reading, Cheltenham and Gloucester.
