At the Root runs a programme of creative weekly workshops for children and young people living in West Lothian. We are currently based in: Bathgate, Blackburn, Dechmont, East Calder, Fauldhouse, Kirknewton and Livingston. The workshops create safe and fun spaces for children and young people to grow in confidence, make new friends and have opportunities to perform to family and friends.


'Both my kids attend at the root classes and love them. One of my kids has additional needs and Matthew and the team go above and beyond to support him and provide an inclusive environment.'

Do you offer trials? Yes, we absolutely do! We really think it's important that you and your child know that drama and At the Root is the right fit for you. Our free trials offer children and young people to try a taster class before booking onto the full term. You can book your free trial via Class4Kids or get in touch with us on to discuss further.

How do we pay for workshops? Our workshops work on a monthly subscription via Class4Kids. Monthly subscriptions are proven to be the best and most affordable way for both groups and parents / carers. The monthly subscription fee is worked out as the cost of a year of drama workshops over twelve months.

What can my child expect from At the Root workshops? Our aim is to create spaces that are playful, build confidence and develop new skills. We play lots of games that are proven to nurture new skills, we explore drama through different activities and exercises, and we work towards performances regularly.

What other opportunities are there for my child to get involved in? There are lots of different opportunities for children and young people to get involved with including: production company, holiday programmes, 50p drama, mind yer drama and much, much more.
