** There are a few places left at the EastEnders Q&A on Friday 22 June at the Hackney Picture House. You can book free tickets here**
Radio 1 and 1Xtra have announced their Radio 1 & 1Xtra Academy, which intends to find and nurture the next wave of young, creative talent in Hackney and the Olympic Boroughs of East London. And the good news is, we'll be joining them!
Taking place in the Picturehouse from June 1 - 22, the Academy will feature workshops and masterclasses, Q&A sessions and panel discussions covering nine themes: Music, Radio, Business, Fashion, Film, Gaming/Software Engineering, Comedy, Journalism and Career Development. We'll be there running scriptwriting workshops, demonstrating what makes good characters, stories and scripts.
Some of our cast will also be visiting the Academy throughout June, and will be taking part in the 'Inspire' panel sessions, giving attendees the opportunity to ask the questions they've been itching to ask...
The Academy is a partnership between Radio 1, 1Xtra and BBC Learning and our workshops form part of EastEnders'and EastEnders: E20's on-going commitment to fostering new and emerging talent.
The full schedule of events, and details of how to apply for a place can be found here
Sounds like an amazing opportunity to us!
