AN interactive children's drama school where pupils can learn to write as well as act has been launched in Hampstead.
Enkore Drama is a new school for children aged five to 12 at the Hampstead and Swiss Cottage community centres.
Founder Katherine Gibbons said: "The core of Enkore is that the children create their own piece of drama.
"For the older children it is about creative writing and storytelling and building this into a performance, and for the younger children it is about physically telling a story through action and words and making this their own piece of drama.
