The Actors Centre

Off the Record

Off the Record is a series of talks with high profile actors and other industry professionals, hosted by Paul Clayton, Chair of the Actors Centre Board of Directors.

Actors, directors, casting directors and producers will be giving interesting and informative insights into their personal journeys in this challenging and ever-changing business.

These talks are available to members for a donation, who will have priority booking over non-members. Donations will be welcome on the day to help cover costs. New events are announced on Twitter and via our mailing list.
