Terms & Conditions
Thinking Actors reserves the right to refuse or withdraw membership. Violence, abuse, harassment of any form, damage to equipment or premises or any form of illegal activity on the premises will not be tolerated. Anyone engaging in any such activities will have their membership revoked and Thinking Actors reserves the right to pursue matters further. We support an equal opportunities policy.
Members visit us and attend workshops and classes at their own risk. The workshop leaders have the right to remove individuals from workshops where their behaviour is deemed to be detrimental to the quality of the session for the majority.
Students are expected to arrive on time for workshops and classes. Latecomers may not be admitted, and no refund will be given. Any issued invoice(s) must be settled.
Non-attendance or persistent lateness is viewed as demonstrating a lack of professionalism that may be deemed incompatible with your ongoing membership of our services.
We work with emerging and established talent. We work with people who are willing to commit to a process of creative exploration and development and who can demonstrate a passion for acting. We value your integrity and reliability.

Failure to attend any accepted offer of a free place will result in a £25.00 fee. By registering through email or online through our website, you agree to these terms.
We charge a consultancy fee of £30.00 per hour to cover our time and advice.
