Curtains Up! is a Scripture Union holiday run by a fantastic team of volunteers for a week in summer in the UK.
We are a creative arts holiday. During the week we run workshops on Backstage,Creative Writing, Dance,Drama, Film, Music, Music Theatre and Visual Arts
Our aim is to provide a fun and safe environment for people to explore their gifts in the arts and their personal relationship with God.
We have got a fantastic team of volunteers who come and give their time (and pay to come!)
In 2019 this same team started up another holiday – Centre Stage. This has the same aims as Curtains Up! But is aimed at the younger 11-14 age group.
Also in 2019 Curtains Up! switched back to cover almost the same age range as when it started back in 1999; the 14-17 age group.
Curtains Up! is a Scripture Union Holiday
