Membership Fees

Urban membership is £46.50 per month. We run weekly 2-hour workshops and various stage and screen projects throughout the year. As part of our UYA Agency we also put our members up for professional auditions and opportunities as they arise.

A one-off joining fee also applies.

We are open all year round and only break over the Christmas period. We have deliberately tried to keep our membership fees at a low price so that Urban is accessible to all. A number of scholarships are also available.

If you join us you will be expected to attend each weekly session.
