We find ourselves in the middle of the year and, although there are lots of uncertainties where the weather is concerned, the middle of July signifies one thing in the Eden Court Engagement hive; the end of term, the end of the academic year and the beginning of our summer classes.
This year we were joined by over 90 students across our Qualification Courses – and although our SQA students have a little longer to wait for their exam results to arrive (Tuesday 6th August, for those who have forgotten!) our LAMDA results are in –
and “WOW” are they good!
Across both LAMDA Acting and LAMDA Musical Theatre all of our qualifying students received a mark with Merit or Distinction and we at Eden Court couldn’t be prouder of them. Special mention must go to our LAMDA tutoring team who work really hard throughout the year to ensure the students achieve their very best.

LAMDA will return for a new term in August. Prospective students should attend the Introduction Session on Wednesday 21st August in the Jim Love Studio at which point the tutors will recommend the appropriate Grade class.
Whilst our LAMDA courses take a short interlude over the summer weeks, our other Qualification Courses have started the 2019-20 academic year already.
A few weeks ago we met with our new student cohort for the first time. This year we are offering Qualifications in National 5 Drama, Higher Drama, Higher Dance and an A-Level Moving Image Arts with 60 students enrolled across these courses – some of which have been running at Eden Court since 2002. Accepting a place on these courses is a serious commitment; these folks spend almost every Saturday of term time at Eden Court!

We are very proud to be one of the only theatres that delivers this range of Qualification Courses and we can’t wait to see what 2019-20 brings!
To those whose exam journey has ended this year- Good Luck with whatever comes next, and to those who are continuing or just starting – Enjoy it all, and soak up as much as you can!
