New Initiatives Grant: The cornerHOUSE has successfully applied for a New Initiatives grant from Kingston Arts to put towards a series of workshops or master classes for amateur musicians. Through the terms of the grant, professional musicians who are performing locally for Thames Concerts in Surbiton will, as part of their contract, give coaching sessions to young performers at the cornerHOUSE.
The first workshop will take place on Sunday 30th October, where participants will receive one-to-one coaching from a professional player from the Lejeune String Trio, and perform a piece in a short concert at the end of the afternoon. Click here for full details of the event.
More details about the event and the New Initiatives grant as a whole, can be found on the Your Kingston ‘New Initiatives’ Grant page of the website, under the ‘inHOUSE events tab at the top of this page or here.
We have drama, comedy, music and more, with in-house productions, resident companies, local and professional drama companies, and some of the UKs finest comedians all providing the entertainment every month. We host classes, workshops, after-school clubs and other educational and artistic activities. We also have exhibitions from some of the best local artists and photographers, and a monthly film club where you can see everything from classic movies to the latest independent hits.
But the cornerHOUSE is not just a place where you can watch shows. It’s also a place where you can be part of the shows, on-stage, backstage, front of house, or behind the bar. Wherever you want to be, and whatever you want to do we have something for you.
Go to the “About Us” pages to find out about volunteering, hiring the cornerHOUSE, or just to know a bit more about us and contact us about anything else.
Whatever you do, we hope to see you here soon.
