In previous years at Curtains Up! our creative workshops have included A Capella Singing, Backstage, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Film, Music, Musical Theatre and Visual Arts. We spend time altogether and in small groups exploring passages from the Bible in ways that allow us to shape sessions around the needs, interests and questions of individuals. There is also time to hang out with old and new friends and enjoy the beautiful outside space.

There is no pressure to believe in God but it helps if you’re happy to spend time with people who do. We will always do our best to find ways to help with the things we can’t change (like the physical set up of the site) in order to help those who find this a challenge. We actively welcome those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We are very happy to listen to ways in which we can help you feel more comfortable and welcome while you are with us. If you would like to know more about any of these things, please contact us.

Curtains Up! is run by an amazing team of volunteers who are all asked to pay the same as young people in order to keep the fees as low as we can.
