Unscripted Players Weekly Workshop
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
Learn new skills, explore, and have fun.
This weekly improv drop in is the perfect chance to get acquainted with the Unscripted Players, the Bristol Improv Theatre's amateur improv company.
Open to everyone, these drop-in workshops are suitable for beginners and up (no pun intended), taught by local and visiting instructors.
Each week brings a new workshop to stretch your improv muscles, learn new skills and meet a load of fantastic, friendly people.
