MAD HATTERS FAMILY...

I am unbelievably proud of Mad Hatters Theatre School.  It has gone from an idea to a reality and grown from strength to strength over the past decade, even negotiating a global pandemic, that is no mean feat. 

What I am most proud of is the Mad Hatters Family.  Every single Mad Hatter that walks through our doors becomes a family member and we don't stop there.  All Mad Hatter parents and members of staff are also part of the growing Mad Hatters family.

My favourite phrase is "Once a Mad Hatter, always a Mad Hatter" no matter how grown up you may get!
