Make Believe are on the hunt across the UK to find more mums who want to earn an income with their own flexible hours and can still look after their children! Make Believe has created a franchise model that enables mumpreneurs to run a business, earn a significant income whilst still being able to do the most important job in the world of being a mum without having to pay extortionate childcare fees. Through their growing network of theatre schools both in the UK and oversees, their aim

All profits from the ticket sales went towards MS Society, Parkinson’s and The Make Believe Foundation. The total amount raised was £1000.

Make Believe Worldwide Ltd have seen an increase of children securing professional jobs and attending auditions in the industry, since Senior Talent Agent Eilidh McCole joined over a year and a half ago. Eilidh moved to London 3 years ago from her hometown of East Kilbride Scotland, to fulfill her dream of being a professional performer. At only 20 years old and just enough money for 1 months’ rent, she had signed with a London agent after graduating from Motherwell College (Now New College Lanarkshire) and was ready

Make Believe Worldwide Ltd are proud to announce the success of student Eva Wang who features in the new Samsung Christmas advert which features on TV and in Cinemas all over the world. Eva (age 9) has attended the Make Believe Bexleyheath branch for 3 years. The Bexleyheath branch is led by Principal Joseph Greenslade.

Eva’s mum Xiaojing said: “We were so excited when we found out she

In a company the size of Make Believe (3000+ students and 150 teachers) it is very hard to single out individuals from the youngsters and their instructors. But sometimes a person knocks on our door and you know as soon as he or she walks into the room that they are something special. Enter Vanessa Bergman who runs Make Believe schools in Edgware, Southgate and Enfield. The truth is that I know Vanessa would be a star franchisee when I appointed her to run one of my

When I started Make Believe from my mother’s front room I would have been happy to work with 20 youngsters in one venue. Twelve years, 50 branches and well over three thousand children later I found myself jumping out of a plane and landing on Sydney Harbour Bridge to launch Make Believe Australia. And what a great feeling that was, the first, tentative step of a worldwide journey to give young people on every continent the opportunity to realise their dreams and aspiring performers to run their

My journey began when I met Joel at an acting convention in London called “Surviving Actors”. I went there just out of curiosity as I had seen it advertised on twitter. When I met Joel, he explained to me what Make Believe was all about and I knew there and then that this was a path I should really consider. I am a working actress auditioning all year round but we all know how difficult it is to find work when we are not acting, right? Have you ever

Recently, I had the privilege of listening to Richard Reed at an event. Richard is co-founder of the Innocent smoothies brand and given the company’s success, he is clearly a guy worth listening to. One of his most interesting ideas was the concept of what he calls PROOFing a company and I’d like to share these ideas with you and demonstrate how we have applied this to Make Believe. PROOF is an acronym made up of the following concepts: P = PEOPLE (I always say people buy people, they don’t

My name’s Maggie and I am the owner of Make Believe Kingston and Bracknell. I have had the pleasure of working for Make Believe since 2014. Originally I was just a parent who attended Make Believe Ealing for my daughter - Julia. My daughter stands by Make Believe as the school that helped her improve her theatre skills and confidence and would be talking about Make Believe all week until her next lesson. Watching her attend the Make Believe school and seeing her follow her dreams gave me a
