Welcome. We have a whole host of shiny, playful things to help you stave off the winter blues: play/create/write (now in Hebden Bridge too), Improv Saturdays, Playful Voices, and the all new Improv Jam. Bring it on!
Playful tips for the writer in you...

Play/create/write is all about playful techniques and resources to inspire and energise. And for anyone who is feeling a bit stuck, it can be a great way to shake things up. If that’s you, try one of these:
  • Write in different places - under a tree (or even up a tree, if you can manage it!), in a car park, in the bathroom.
  • Write with different things in different colours - crayons, felt tips, chalk, pencil, charcoal.
  • Write standing up or sitting on the floor.
  • Write at different times of the day and night - throw in some ‘guerrilla’ writing (impromptu and when you least expect it).
  • Write around the edges of an on old train ticket or a household bill. Cover your writing ‘desk’ with a paper tablecloth and write on that.


Now in Otley and Hebden Bridge!
Stimulate your imagination and recharge your writing with a day of creativity and play.

Suitable for complete beginners to experienced writers, or anyone interested in being more creative.

Come and join us for 90 minutes of pure vocal joy (and a healthy dose of silliness).

Want to learn gibberish? Be part of an "ooh, aah orchestra"?

We’ll be playing improv-based games and finding our voices in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step, whether you're a lover of singing, can't hold a tune or anything in between.

Next workshop: Sunday 24 February
So we were thinking - how can we give people a taste of our friendly-style of improv, and the chance to have a go themselves?

And then we thought - why not put on our own Improv Jam?

It's easy. We suggest some games, invite people up "on stage" and let it roll.

A light-hearted, informal evening of fun and uplifting improv - what's not to like? So come on up to the quirky and intimate function room at North Bar Social, 8-10 Bondgate St, Otley LS21 3AB.

First Sunday of the month 7 to 8.30pm
£2 on the door

Launching on Sunday 3 Feb
Improv Saturdays

Still going strong in 2019, with games galore and fun unlimited...

If you've not been to an Improv Saturday yet, why not make 2019 the year you give it a try. And if you're a seasoned regular, welcome back! We can't wait to see you all.
