PLYMOUTH - SUNDAY 1st MARCH  10am - 5.30pm

Stand Up & Stand Out!
Maggie Irving invites performers, dancers, actors, and artists to a masterclass in clowning for the 21st century. It is a rare opportunity to work with a trained clown who sees this art form as a mode to altering the status quo and a space to break from socialisation. 


Humour, Play and Creativity for Business, Topsham
Sunday 22nd February 2015

Humour, Play and Creativity for Business is a one day workshop for businesswomen. The event is being organised and run by Maggie Irving and aims to bring greater dynamism, humour and creativity to women’s presentations and businesses.

Participants will investigate how each of us can improve our comedy and performance skills; generate trust and enhance our relationships, predominantly in business, though these skills will translate into everyday life too.

Using her expertise in clowning and comedy, Maggie will teach some of the fundamentals of this skill in order that women might become more empowered, funnier, confident, savvy and able to think outside the box.
Date: Sunday 22nd February 2015, 9.30 for 10am start. Finish - 4pm.
Venue: St Matthews Hall, Topsham.
Cost: £55
Tea and coffee provided.



Why so Serious? 
Exeter - Topsham - The Dorothy Holman Centre, Ferry Road, EX3 0JW

A set of classes that aim to bring more humour, positive interaction, creative thinking, improvisation and comedy skills into the lives of adults. This is a unique opportunity for adults to enhance their humour skills, confidence, communication and creativity.

Life can be a tad too serious at times and stepping into the shoes of a clown is a unique opportunity to see the world through a different perspective. We have to carry on playing. It is fundamental to our growth and problem solving abilities and the smart clown is a supreme player.
There is a talk and taster session with Maggie between 11am - 12.00pm on Wednesday 14th January at the Dorothy Holman Centre, Ferry Road. £5 per person.
The six-week course takes place every Wednesday from 28th January to 4th March,  11am-12.15pm. Spaces are limited so please book early. £50.
