Lunchtime Seminar with Andy Nyman

4 May 2017

Lunchtime Seminars in the TBT

The Lunchtime Seminars programme provides a great opportunity for our members and the public to hear new ideas, thoughts and techniques from individuals at the top of their field.

We are continuing our series in 2017 with a brand new seminar from Andy Nyman thanks to our partners Nick Hern Books. Andy will give an informal talk touching on his thinking and philosophies on what it takes to survive in the business.

This seminar is not to be missed! Make sure you check out the information below and head on over to the Tristan Bates Theatre website to book your ticket.


The Golden Rules of Acting

Based on his hugely popular best-selling book, Andy will discuss what it takes to survive and get through life in the business. Answering any questions you may have, this promises to be a frank and inspiring hour.

Andy will be signing copies of his book after the event. Easy to dip into, fully illustrated throughout, and designed to be both instructive and empowering, The Golden Rules of Acting is every actor’s best friend – in handy paperback form. It's a treasure trove of advice, support and encouragement that no performer should be without. Pick up your copy at an exclusive event price of £5 (rrp £6.99) on the day!
