What happens when I arrive?

You will be greeted by our friendly team of tutors and young people who will help you with the registration form and give you a tour of our studio and rehearsal rooms.

You can relax in our foyer with games and light refreshments before the workshops begin!

We welcome new people all through the term, and you will find many friendly faces in the workshop. We encourage everyone to take part in their own time.

Our centre is open for young people from 10:30am - 5pm.

Where do the workshops take place?

Walk all the way down Deptford High Street (Greenwich side) until you reach Creek Road. There, you will find the big red brick Methodist Mission Building on 1 Creek Road. You will also see our big blue Wave windows. Cross the road and when you reach the green doors, ring the Intercom buzzer for Second Wave. Our friendly team will buzz you up!
