City College Brighton & Hove

RADA, the world-famous centre of excellence for the dramatic arts noted for producing such actors as Sir John Gielgud, Lord Attenborough, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Glenda Jackson, recently visited City College Brighton and Hove’s Acting & Drama department to inform students about opportunities to continue their training at the renowned Academy. The visit was part of a Performing Arts Higher Education Progression Event at the College which was also attended by Rose Bruford, Urdang Academy, Winchester, St Mary's and Chichester University representatives.

RADA’s Caroline Kilpatrick, an up-and-coming actress who is appearing in the soon-to-be-released movie ‘The Invisible Woman’ directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes, said: "It was a really lively, engaging encounter with the students and they displayed just the sort of curiosity and enthusiasm that will help them progress in their acting careers. I hope I managed to whet their appetites for the opportunities available at RADA for students with the right talent, commitment and work ethic."

Andrew Hoggarth, City College’s Acting & Drama Team Leader added: "The majority of our students use the skills and qualifications they’ve gained here to successfully progress to Higher Education so it was fantastic to have someone of Caroline’s calibre talk to our actors and give them an insight into what they can achieve if they put their minds to it and make the most of the training we’re currently providing them with."
