Our Loughton Campus is based around Hatfields, a beautiful Georgian dower
house, set in six acres of lawns, with orchards, flowerbeds and a small lake.
The location provides an idyllic atmosphere for study, relaxation and
performance. The campus is also close to the ancient Epping Forest - which
offers further opportunities for outdoor activities.
We offer dynamic and unique courses for actors, directors, technical theatre specialists and students of
theatre practice. We carefully select, teach and train students from the UK and from over 26 countries worldwide.
The Courtyard Studios consists of six large rehearsal spaces, a radio studio
and a screening room, and the Dance Studio has first-class facilities for ballet, jazz and
other movement work.
Hatfields is also home to the Corbett Theatre, named in honour of Harry H
Corbett, an important Theatre Workshop member and early benefactor of East 15.
Combined with full technical facilities, tiered
seating for 125 people and fitted dressing rooms, the theatre provides an
excellent resource for public productions.

£1.5 million facility, next to Roding House. It houses the large technical
department and contains a workshop, paint shop, prop shop, prop storage
