Training for business. We train people to be great communicators.

As an actor training centre and touring theatre company, compelling story-telling and creativity are at the heart of everything we do. We train actors to step out on stage and persuade an audience to believe in a world of make-believe… and it works! 


We are experts in voice, body language and creative thinking. Whether you want to improve communication, build confidence and charisma, or become more persuasive, our approach will help you to create a positive mind-set and overcome your personal barriers.


Actor training has been creating confident and persuasive story-tellers for over 100 years. We use practical actor training techniques, to empower delegates with strategies that they can use time and time again to succeed in their role.

Socially conscious investment

As a Community Interest Company, the Actors’ Institute is committed to supporting young artists and improving regional engagement in the arts.


We offer a subsidised training programme, free residencies and mentorship for early career artists, as well community engagement programmes in partnership with charitable organisations.


The income we receive from training ensures that all of these programmes are able to continue supporting our local community, and regional early career artists, as well as supporting our professional touring company to keep creating challenging new work.
