Summer School

The DAW annual Summer School is an intensive week of theatrical learning, with like-minded people, and led by some of the country’s leading theatrical practitioners. Content is relevant to the amateur theatre community, but challenges existing habits and nurtures new approaches, techniques and practices.

Each year DAW selects a venue which offers the accommodation, workspaces, catering and social evening requirements which go into making a successful Summer School. We work hard in offering these elements at as low a price as possible.

Broneirion Country House

Accommodation and workshops will be held at Broneirion Country House which is set in four acres of grounds and situated in a beautiful valley of the upper reaches of the River Severn. Its peaceful and picturesque location overlooks the village of Llandinam, in Mid Wales. The hospitality and food were brilliant last year, with the bar staying open as late as we wanted.
