On Saturday 3rd October, over 100 children accompanied by family and friends turned up to the launch of The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts Cardiff.

The atmosphere was electric, lots of excited young faces turned up not knowing what to expect! The children were split into age groups and got to sample classes in PQA’s core modules; comedy and drama, musical theatre and film and television, whilst the parents had the opportunity to take a peek at their children in action during classes.

Tom Barker, Principal of PQA Cardiff said “I am delighted to provide young people in the area with such a unique performing arts experience. We teach a comprehensive range of skills, which are useful for everyday life, not just a career in the performing arts. I am so excited to see what the future brings and want to thank everyone for their support!”
