Welcome to The Bamboo House!

Introducing Fourth Monkey’s Bristol home and training base, The Bamboo House!

Inspired by the core principles of ensemble and collaboration upon which Fourth Monkey was founded in 2010, we opened the doors to our Bristol Centre of Excellence, The Bamboo House, in September 2021, working with a number of talented and highly-regarded Bristol-based practitioners and creatives, including the team from The Actors Workshop, in order to bring our professional vocational actor training to an even broader spectrum of young creatives.

Take a glimpse behind the scenes at The Bamboo House plus hear from members of our dynamic practitioner team, including Head of Centre of Excellence, Paloma Oakenfold, and Head of CertHE Acting & Theatre Making (Bristol), Clara Marullo, for an insight into what to expect from actor training with Fourth Monkey…


Thinking about drama school training for 2022? We are holding a series of audition days at The Bamboo House in Bristol to give applicants based in the city and surrounding region the chance to meet members of our team, explore the studio spaces that make up our Bristol training environment, and see and experience everything actor training with Fourth Monkey has to offer.

The first audition day at The Bamboo House in Bristol takes place on Saturday 5 February, and applicants for all training courses are welcome to attend, including BA (Hons) Acting and MA Collaborative Theatre – learn more and apply!
