    I started coming to Playhouse when my little boy was 18 months old and I was expecting my second child. I felt at home and relaxed, when I had my new baby, my son could play happily while I could comfortably feed my baby. So it was great for all of us. That was over 6 years ago and now I attend with my third child who loves it! I have mad many friends and connections at Playhouse. There isn't anywhere else like it. Alison Quinn (Reciprocal Care)

    Hello viewers, I've been practicing martial arts for over a decade now and have been through a few clubs. TORA is not just about Karate, its about life and personal development with the team and family also. I really see TORA as family and a place where you can de load. You learn a great deal of respectful and knowledgeable instructors, the students are fun to be around and know when to get serious, and there are regular classes including Saturdays. From Karate to Kickboxing TORA offers some diversity along with level of intensity suitable for everyone - from a simple practitioner to a full contact fighter. So come on down, or up, and see what TORA is all about! James.

    04-02-2017 by Lina Hoang

    First we booked for a free trial lesson as this place charges very affordable prices but they provide quality lessons. I got 2 kids and the younger one 3.5 years old is too young to start piano lessons,and teacher recommend other places for group dancing/singing classes, so teacher only chose my 6 years old. Teachers are so kind and honest, they won't take your children for lessons until your children are ready to learn piano. And my son likes iit, he can't wait for the next lesson.

    Interesting class!

    Point Break Drama’s encouraging tuition has allowed me to explore the art of performance through a broad a range of acting techniques that I have learned from attending their acting classes over the years. The enthusiasm from both students and teachers makes performing pieces enjoyable rather than a nerve wracking experience! They cater for every skill level whether you are just starting out or have had experience you will definitely improve under their guidance. I highly recommend Point Break Drama to everyone.

    Fantastic courses and tutors

    Paul Winchester & his team of highly skilled tutors are supportive, encouraging & very passionate. I strongly recommend PBD to anyone looking to grow their skills as an actor in a fun, supportive & challenging environment. I have attended many courses with PBD which have all been fantastic. Highlights being Leigh Pickford's casting workshop & most recently Felix Williamson's masterclasses, which helped all of us improve our scene & character analysis hugely.
