WHO WE ARE
West End Calling is a registered charity (1204485) with a goal to give opportunities and experiences to young performers all over the country to learn and develop in the creative arts. We are passionate about helping young people improve, grow and understand the importance of building confidence in all aspects of life.
Regional cities don't always get the same exposure to West End workshops and top level opportunities, which is why we take our services all over the country.
West End Calling was founded in 2016 as a way for young people to experience what auditioning and performing in the industry is like. We have seen thousands of young people come through the door in 5 years of competitions.
When COVID struck, we took a break and decided to commit to the charitable ethos that we had and registered as a charity. Now we can give the same support and experience to even more young performers and bring the West End to your local theatre. With the addition of West End Workshops, we are already expanding into more than just a competition and we aim to bring even more unique experiences to your doorstep.
