Stand Up Workshop

At City Academy, you can learn the basics of stand-up comedy on your stag do! All teachers at the academy are professional comedians, so you'll be in good hands as you develop confidence on stage. 

With help and guidance from the teachers, you will have a day playing fun improvisation excercises with your friends. With these excercises, you can improve your comedic timing by keeping on your toes and shooting from the hip!

Normally, workshops last for two hours, but this can be tailored to suit the needs of your group. With classes available across multiple venues in London, you can make your comedy workshop fit your stag weekend.

Photography Workshops

This exciting workshop involves you and your friends getting to grips with cameras, learning the basics of photography. You can choose to roam the streets of London on a Street Photography excursion, or go all out with props and the lot in a Studio Shoot. 

For the Street Photography Workshop you can choose between several iconic London areas, using tips and tricks gathered from the professional photographers to help get the best snapshots.

If you opt for a studio shoot, you can get some valuable training both in front and behind the camera! Be sure to bring props so that you can strike a pose in the guise of a hilarious stag theme. 

At the end, your teacher will take a group shot to fittingly mark the occasion!

Life Drawing Workshop

Go for something fun, arty and a little bit cheeky with a Life Drawing Workshop. A skilled artist will take you through the basics of drawing, before arming your group with pens and paper to begin the class.

In this class, you will attempt to capture the human body as a peice of art by interpreting your model as they go through a series of poses. Whether you draw a masterpiece or not is irrelevant, just give the class your best shot and have a whale of a time with your mates!
