Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts

In late October 2018 the Academy opened on its new site next to Peckham Library. It is one of the UK’s leading drama schools, offering degree courses on acting, theatre design and many other aspects of the performing arts. It is also the first degree-awarding institution to be located in Peckham. In time they will have drop-in sessions, a public cafĂ© and restaurant. It will be a real community-based centre. There are plans for a 200 seat theatre once funding is forthcoming. Autumn 2018 Issue 154
