Members COmmittee recruitment

The Actors Centre Members Committee is a group of AC members who get together regularly with the aim of organising events to bring members together, to foster a community and facilitate networking. These have consisted of film nights supported by the BFI, comedy nights and pub quizzes and we are looking to branch and diversify. 

The idea is for AC members to feel that the Centre is also a place where, in addition to progressing their training, they can socialise with their fellow actors.  The Committee is looking for new members or volunteers. Volunteers can assist with organising specific events without need for a more regular commitment or become fully fledged committee members. If you’re interested in joining, please get in touch with Hannibal Latuff at


new board members

We're delighted to announce our two new board members, Lisa Hammond and Polly Bennet. Have a read of their biographies on our Board page.
