Music & Performing Arts

Be the headline act.

Are music and performing arts your gig? You won’t find a better venue than NSCG! You can act, sing and dance your way to success by learning in our top-class facilities as part of our music, dance, production and performing arts courses.

You will be supported throughout by industry-experienced lecturers and technicians as you strengthen your understanding of the performing arts and hone your craft.

Get West End ready! Our performing arts courses, including those in musical theatre and technical theatre, will help to equip you with many other valuable transferable skills such as confidence, resilience and teamwork. Since treading the boards here we’ve seen alumni go on to form successful bands, theatre groups and become West End performers. We can’t wait to see what you can do!

Throughout the year whether studying Acting, Dance, Musical Theatre or Technical Theatre courses, you'll have the opportunity to be involved in countless productions from Pantomimes, West End Shows, Gigs and community events. Our Performing Arts department is a hub of activity.

Reach higher: If you're ready to move onto a university level qualification, we offer a full and part-time HNC and HND course in Performing Arts and BRAND NEW for this year is our HNC in Music.


The staff are second to none and take every measure to see you excel.

An inspirational environment.

Budding thespians, dancers and musicians can take centre stage during the annual pantomime or one of the many other events and performances that take place throughout the year – you’ll even get the chance to devise original work. Theatre trips, masterclasses with industry professionals and workshops led by skilled practitioners will also inspire and challenge you.
