Performance opportunities are at the heart of Guildhall Young Artists King’s Cross, with music, drama and production arts students coming together to create innovative performances.

At Guildhall Young Artists we understand that committing to a new place with people you haven't met can feel daunting. This is why we offer a free taster session before joining – so if you don't want to come back afterwards, there is no obligation to do so. We usually find this takes the pressure off our students and allows them to relax and fully enjoy their first day with us.
Our free taster sessions also gives you a better feel for the classes that you would like to take part in, to meet our inspiring tutors and to help us design the very best timetable for your requirements.
