20.06.19 - Dallas Welsh Joins BAFTA-Winning Television Workshop

We would like to say a huge well done to Dallas Welsh, Year 9, who has been offered a place to train with BAFTA-award winning charity, The Television Workshop.

The Television Workshop is a well-respected and professionally-oriented group with direct links to film and television. Each year more than one thousand young hopefuls audition for one of the few places available.

Dallas said: “I was really nervous for my audition but it went really well. Everyone who was auditioning was very kind and I made lots of friends. I can’t wait for my first lesson with them in September.”

Miss Colgan, Head of Drama, said: “We are very proud of what our students achieve in the arts, both in and out of school. Congratulations Dallas!”

Dallas’ Mum added: “Dallas was one of 20 children out of hundreds picked to train weekly with the Nottingham-based Television Workshop; we couldn’t be more proud!

“I’d like to thank Ockbrook School for the work you do to support Dallas. You have played a huge part in providing Dallas with the skills and confidence she needs to achieve new opportunities and exciting experiences.”

The Television Workshop has been in operation in Nottingham since 1983. It offers a development opportunity at a well-respected group with direct links to the film and television industry. Its patrons include ex Workshop member Samantha Morton, director Shane Meadows and actor Christopher Eccleston. Casting successes include the likes of Chris Gascoyne (Coronation Street), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones), Vicky McClure (Line of Duty) and Toby Kebbell (Dawn of The Planet of the Apes), plus many more.
