The ‘Actors’ Richmond Centre’ was founded in the 1980s by Sam Walters - Director of the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, Surrey. He felt that there was a need locally for a centre that could run workshops for professional actors. We have been running now for over twenty years and Sam is now our patron.
ARC has an elected chairman and committee with a constitution of principles.
We give occasional performances of words and music for charity, and, once or twice a year, we sing as a guest choir at the Actors' Church, St Paul's, Covent Garden. We also take part in the summer season of entertainment at Garrick's Temple in Hampton.
