Hi Lynsey, The car park is open from 10am until the last event of the day in the building is over, so you will be able to use the car park when attending Nightschool. We can't guarantee that there will always be spaces, and the car park can become busy on performance days. However, if you are attending levels 2 or 4, there are rarely performances on Mondays.

Hi, I wondered are you able to park in the citizens theatre car park on class nights? Obviously I would always try to be on time but I will be coming from the west end leaving at 5.30 so I may be a few minutes late traffic dependant, would that be a problem? Thanks

Hi Hannah, Nightschool is open to all adults, and we have many dedicated members in their 40s and 50s, so you would be most welcome!

Hi, I'm interested in the Level 1 Beginners course for the summer term. What kind of age group do you attract, I'm in my fifties.

Hi James, I'm afraid fees CAN'T be paid through ILA at this time - it needs to be an accredited course.

Can fees be paid via ILA?

Hi Kathleen, we do encourage full attendance to our classes, however if you've advised us from the start about your availability it should not be a problem to miss a few.

Hello, I'm really interested in joining your level one drama course, however I work in the NHS and my rota requires me to do some night shift. Does the course require you to attend every class? Or can I come whenever I'm available?

“The tutors were really inspirational. Restored my faith in night classes. Great value for money”
