New stage school gets underway with community events boss at helm
A NEW stage school has been launched by a man who has run a host of community events in Macclesfield.
Children have attended the first session of the Make Believe performing arts company which has launched a branch in Macclesfield.
The school is the latest project for Brad Snelling, who is known to people in Macclesfield for running other community events including Winterfest and many of Barnaby Festival’s high profile events.
Brad said: “I have loved performing arts ever since I was a child and worked with children for more than 10 years before embarking on festivals and tours.
“I decided to open a Make Believe school as I appreciated and agreed with the ethos that all children from every socio-economic background should be able to enjoy these classes without class standards being compromised.
“I love working with children and so do the teachers and we are really looking forward to seeing the school grow and seeing the children’s confidence in their abilities grow with it.
“Make Believe boosts confidence and allows the children to be creative in a non-judgemental and nurturing environment.”
The Macclesfield school can give 65 children aged three to 18 tuition in singing, acting and dancing.
The branch is based at All Hallows Catholic College, Brooklands Avenue, and runs on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm.

Make Believe was founded by Joel Kern in 2004 and has schools in and around London, Australia and Manchester.
