  • 3:15-6:15pm (Age 11 to 18 | Year 7+)

RECALLS: Sunday 22nd September 

  • 1:00-5:30pm

Performance Week: Monday 9th to Sunday 15th June 2025

  • Children will NOT be required to miss any school during this week. 
  • All shows and show week rehearsals will take place late afternoon/early evening


We have been trying desperately to find an alternative theatre as the Radlett Centre had no availability in February or July. We have contacted every theatre in North West London and none could accommodate us for a full week. The Radlett Centre has availability in June so we’ve grasped the opportunity! 

Every Sunday from 1:00-5:30pm term time only. 


Currently not.

For productions from 2025 onwards we may only accept Big Time Students for auditions. 

Unfortunately not. These productions are very popular and due to rehearsal space and staffing we are limited in the number of students we can take. 

Please note these productions are designed to give children a taste of the performing industry to which there is a competitive element. We appreciate it can be dissapointing and upsetting not getting a place, especially if your friends do so please take this into account when deciding to apply for your child. 

Yes! Every child who attends Big Time classes is offered the opportunity to perform in our winter recital every December. We also host watching week performances every term for family and friends, so children can show what they’ve been working on and feel a sense of achievement.
