Beacon Play Reading Group

Every Wednesday at 4pm

A group for people who want to participate in some play reading! Whether you want to read with us or simply tune in to listen all are welcome!

Every Wednesday at 4pm we'll get together online for an hour and a half to read a play - or one Act of a longer play - via Skype.

Members can then feel free to use this page to share in discussions and thoughts about what we've been reading. A new set of readers will be selected each week, even if we spend longer than one week on the same play. This is to give everyone a fair opportunity to read. Members are asked to observe the groups' rules.

This is a space for creativity, community and fun!

Toasted Fiction Podcast

An audio series of short plays and stories recorded at Beacon Arts Centre a few years ago. Created by writer/director Christopher Patrick, the episodes feature works from writers throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK.

The episodes were all recorded in front of a live audience and read by professional actors. 

Contemporary Dance Playlist

Our wonderful contemporary dance teacher, Jane Simpson, has created a playlist with stretches, warm ups, routines, music and solo taks, great resource for you to do at home.

The playlist includes a shorter warm up into a final sequence, and a longer floor work section.
