BOOK Music & Lyrics is the UK’s only professional development programme for musical theatre, running weekly 2 hour workshops to develop and foster craft skills specific to musical theatre for emerging and experienced practitioners. Whether you’ve written hundreds of musicals or just starting out and looking to work more collaboratively, this is a place hone your craft with your peers.

Regular and guest facilitators include: Jason Carr, Tim Sutton, Mark Warman, David Firman, David James, George Stiles, Jeremy Sams, Sir Richard Stilgoe, Charles Hart, Sarah Travis, Elliot Davis, Gary Yershon, Jonathan Butterell and Anthony Drewe.

‘I can thoroughly recommend BML’s programme. Not only is there a very high standard of writing from many of the participants – but my own interaction working as a facilitator with fellow writers has revealed much about the process of my own writing.

Even if you’ve had some success, the learning goes on forever if you’re going to stay fresh. There are some great facilitators, fascinating writers and nothing beats the pressure of a new song each week.’ – George Stiles
