About Us


Inspire Academy is a thriving drama workshop based in Nottingham City Centre. The group was established in 2007 by Luke Gell and has grown from a small group of 17 young people meeting in a community centre, to a now thriving organisation with over 150 members meeting weekly for drama training.


Our sessions are held in Nottingham City Centre and have a focus on a natural, truthful performance style. Our organisation has a 'doing' mentality. We believe that all young people develop their skills by putting into practice the techniques they learn. We are a constantly active workshop, holding a play season each year, writing and producing short films, devising theatre, taking part in national and local initiatives, projects etc.


Alongside our drama training, we are a casting pool, recognised by Spotlight. We have provided talented young actors for projects with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and many film production companies including Universal and Warner Bros.
