All of us at Euroscript are delighted to be using Newman House for an increasing number of our weekend workshops!
Newman House, just off Oxford Street and a very short walk from Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street tube stations, is a brilliant working space for creatives. For my two most recent all-day workshops, I have really enjoyed being there and the access to tea and coffee all day long is a big plus!
Perhaps because it is a converted townhouse, it very much has the intimate feel of being in someone’s home, yet a great deal tidier and more professional looking than my own! We have used more corporate environments in the past, which have been brilliant, but for the informal and friendly atmosphere I try to create, I have found it ideal, and am delighted that the participant feedback has reflected that as well.
The venue opened incredibly recently, so the space will undoubtedly evolve as it is used more. There is a meeting room with a screen I’ve used for showing extracts, work stations and a comfortable seating area. Best, and most rarely of all in Central London, it is incredibly affordable which means that we can keep our course prices at the same levels they have been for the past 10 years or so. This is something that is incredibly important to us as an organisation, as we are acutely aware that if our courses are not affordable, they become inaccessible to exactly the people whose writing we hope to support.
We are looking forward to becoming more involved with the activities at Newman House as the year goes on, including a talk here, a special event there, and obviously will keep you posted through our regular mailings. The management is extremely helpful and enthusiastic about new creative ventures, so it has already been a greatly beneficial relationship, even though our beautiful friendship has only just begun!
Euroscript now offers discounts on all our courses to Newman House members, who are also benefiting from their exclusive member events, as well as access to their facilities at reduced rates.
Perhaps we’ll see you there at Paul Bassett Davies’ upcoming Sitcom Weekend (30 – 31 May)!
