Each venue has it's own unique style and ambience, making each experience special and distinct for principals, performers and parents alike. We welcome troupes from all over the U.K. to join us at theses amazing venues to be our VIPs for the day and discover the sensation of being The Stars in Our Eyes.

It was created to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert to promote the Arts and currently plays host to a wide variety of events, including regular tours of Cirque du Soleil and live performances from artists such as Robbie Williams.

This venue offers your school and dancers the opportunity to stage a spectacular 360 degree performance to an audience of as many as five thousand keen supporters.

Sadler's Well Theatre - Islington, London

Sadler's Wells' has been a place of entertainment for over 300 years, ever since a Mr Dick Sadler opened his 'musick house' in Islington in the 1680s. The discovery of a medicinal well led to the name of Sadler's Wells. In the eighteenth century entertainment consisted of Jugglers, tumblers, rope-dancers, ballad-singers, wrestlers, stage-fighters, dancing dogs and even a singing duck trod the boards there! Joseph Grimaldi, the great comic actor who led the development of English pantomime, was Sadler's Wells' star performer in the early years of the nineteenth century.

From around 1843 Sadler's Wells started to represent the work of our great dramatic poets' and within the next thirteen years staged thirty of Shakespeare's plays, introducing them in the original texts to large audiences of working people. After a number of transitions and some declines the original theatre was bulldozed in 1996, and the present modern-day theatre opened its doors in October 1998.

Her Majesty's Theatre - Haymarket, London SW1

Since 1705 there have been four theatres on the site of Her Majesty's. The current building was erected by the famous Actor-Manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree to house his spectacular productions of Shakespeare and literary adaptations and opened in 1897
