A4D Scriptwriting programme at the Royal Court launched, starts 17 January 2019

We are thrilled to launch our first programme of 2019 – Scriptwriting at the Royal Court Theatre led by playwright Simon Longman, whose “raw, bleak, humane” Gundog was performed at the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in Spring 2018.  The Royal Court has an outstanding reputation as the leading force in world theatre for energetically cultivating writers – undiscovered, emerging and established.

This is an exceptional opportunity to learn new skills and express yourself in the Royal Court, the country’s leading theatre for new writing, with others affected by dementia.

These sessions will re-energise and inspire individuals, carers, families and friends living with early-stage dementia within the community.

All abilities are welcome, no previous scriptwriting experience necessary.

Participants are invited to register for all sessions with a companion. Please call Arts 4 Dementia on 0207 239 4954 or email admin@arts4dementia.org.uk to register. The workshops are free of charge.


Thursday mornings: 10am—1pm (including tea, coffee and socialising)
