Upstagers Academy Summer School

Upstagers has been providing a creative outlet for youngsters in Ilkley and the surrounding district for thirty years. Following last year's super-successful sold-out Summer School spectacular, we are excited to announce our 2017 Summer School which will take place the week commencing 7th August.

Our participants get the most out of their experience by building confidence and developing communication skills, whilst also having a lot of fun and meeting new friends. We are proud that a number of of Upstagers alumni have created successful careers in theatre and other forms of acting, and we look to build on this in the future.

The Summer School is open for participants aged 7 to 15 years old and take place at 'The Barn', (Upstagers' home) opposite Ilkley railway station.

Participants should bring a packed lunch, but drinks and a mid-morning snack will be provided.

Places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Please email thelastjedi to book or if you have any questions.

Times and dates

The Summer School runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm between Monday 7th August and Friday 11th August. There will be a performance on the Friday (timings TBC) and pupils’ families are welcome to attend.


Upstagers Summer School costs £100 per pupil. The fees cover all five days and include an exclusive Summer School T-shirt.
