About Express Arts


It all started when...

From the beginnings of Express back in 2012, our experienced team have delivered over 350 hours of workshops to over 50 young people throughout the North West. 

With its main aim to help build confidence in young people through the use of drama & theatre techniques, Express Arts is a skill developing platform which delivers a number of classes in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Founded by theatrical duo Kathryn Cooke and Matthew Thomas back in 2012 with the aim to increase drama activity in Warrington, Express has since been rapidly expanding and current creative directors Sammi Walsh, Amy Warburton and Hollie Wimpenny are doing all they can to progress and continue to develop drama within Warrington and the North West. 

Although our main focus is acting for stage, in particluar character development, here at Express we like to encourage developing ideas and interests within various aspects of the creative industries. This includes also holding workshops based around scriptwriting, directing, stage management, set and prop creation, hair and makeup styling and we have even been known to dip our toes into film making and acting for the screen.
