Nick Henman

Nick is a fantastic facilitator and performer who started with us 9 years ago as a workshop assistant. He went off to York University to complete an Acting, Directing and Writing degree. He has performed at the Edinburgh festival recently and can be seen in the current Deliveroo advert ( albeit only three quarters of his 6ft 8 in torso). He has taken part in many local productions including the Adams Family and the Importance of Being Earnest in Horsham. He also performed in Antigone and Midsummer night’s dream with West Sussex youth theatre. Nick was a member of the National Youth theatre.

His contribution to Dramaworks has been amazing throughout the years and he was always a regular visitor. His diction game is legendary as is his rendition of ‘All the ladies by Beyoncé’!

Primarily, Nick is dedicated to the students and firmly believes in our philosophy of building confidence through fun activities which are underpinned by strong dramatic theory. He has a wide knowledge of plays and theatre techniques which have helped and supported our LAMDA students. We are so pleased he is back to lead sessions.
