B.U. School, a new series of Saturday morning classes for children, is to be launched this September at the Chiswick Playhouse.

It is promised to be much more than just a stage school. The organisers say that each week children will get involved with a new activity such as sketch comedy, improvisation, public speaking, acting on screen, learning new accents or even delivering their very own podcast. They add that it will be an opportunity for children to have fun, make friends and develop new skills.

Classes will run from 10am to 11.30am for ages 5-7 and 12pm to 1.30pm for ages 8-11. Autumn term runs from Saturday 12 September to Saturday 5 December.

A spokesperson for B.U. School said, “Whilst busy getting involved in all these activities, children will be learning and developing. Self-Awareness, Self-Confidence and Well-Being is central to everything we do.

“They will come away from B.U School having had a great time and also with communication skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives.”

B.U. School hopes to launch at other locations in addition to Chiswick Playhouse.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
