Inspire Academy is a thriving drama workshop in the heart of Nottingham. The group was established in 2007 by Luke Gell and has grown from a small group of 17 young people meeting in a community centre in Nottingham to now, a thriving organisation of 150 young people between the ages of 7-21.

Weekly sessions are held in our City Centre studio with a focus on a natural, truthful performance style. Our organisation has a ‘doing’ mentality. We believe that all young people develop their skills by putting into practice the techniques they learn. We are a constantly active workshop, holding a Play Season each year, writing and producing short films, devising theatre, taking part in National and Local initiatives and projects etc.

We are a casting pool recognised by Spotlight. We have provided talented young actors for projects with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and many film production companies including Universal and Warner Bros.

We hope you enjoy browsing our new look website. We’d love to hear from you if you have any questions about who we are and what we do.
