Clubs & Classes
Andy Mole Schools of Tae Kwon Do – I have been teaching TKD, for over 20 years, to Adults, Children and Families.
I try to make the classes that I teach as varied as possible. So whatever you are looking for in a martial art you will find it. Whether it’s a structured and disciplined environment for your children to learn a martial art. Or a workout with a purpose, that could eventually lead to a black belt.
The classes could involve using impact pads including MMA & Boxing style drills or we could be perfecting our techniques for the next Grading test. We also do a certain amount of conditioning using bodyweight exercises, HIIT training & fitness equipment. We also have classes available where you can train alongside your children. I currently have several family groups training.
TAE KWON DO CLASSES IN THE NAILSEA AREA – Nailsea Tkd has students from white belt through to 3rd Dan black belt and as young as four to well over forty. We train at the Scotch Horn Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday and Nailsea Comprehensive school on Fridays.
TAE KWON DO CLASSES IN THE YATTON AREA – The club has around 60 students of all ages. Over the years students have competed in numerous competitions with great success. The junior class in Yatton has always been very popular and has some really enthusiastic members.
TAE KWON DO CLASSES IN THE CHEW VALLEY AREA – The club has around 30 students of all ages. The classes in Chew Valley are split into beginners and senior students. The first class is from complete beginners up to green belt and is for ages five to adult. Families are welcome and discounts are available. The second class is for students blue belt and above of all ages. Chew Valley has always been a family orientated club. The first two students were a dad and his five year old son, both achieved black belt. We have some really enthusiastic members and we always try to make classes fun.

A range of frequent workshops and participatory sessions are on offer for children aged 2-18, from Play in a Week (ages 7-12), five days of fun-filled theatrical workshops culminating in an original performance for an invited audience, to the Theatre Royal Bath Theatre School, offering specialised training in both acting and backstage disciplines for all young people.
The Theatre Royal Bath Theatre School (TRBTS) provides an insight into the professional world of theatre and gives young individuals the opportunity to be part of something bigger. TRBTS is the only youth theatre in Bath with open access to a professional working theatre. The theatre knowledge that exists within the building is second to none.
TRBTS runs weekly sessions for young people aged 5-18, offering a range of skills workshops in a variety of theatre disciplines and creative arts. The youngest members engage with the arts through creative play – nurturing their development. From aged 13 upwards, members can choose to specialise in Acting or Backstage, working with professional theatre-makers to create high quality productions in the egg and other venues. All of the shows produced are supported by industry professional production and creative teams, including: costume and set designers, sound designers, composers, stage management and lighting designers.
The Egg also boasts an exciting partnership with Bath College aimed at students aged 16 and over. Drawing on 10+ years of the egg’s creative endeavours, plus years of educational expertise from the college, our collaboration strives to create the optimum conditions for art and learning to thrive. The course is full time and provides graduating students with the equivalent of three A-levels.
Adults with a passion for theatre can join our Summer School for Actors, a week-long intensive summer school that gives aspiring actors the chance to develop skills, grow confidence and build a robust toolkit to fall back on in performance.
The Egg building is fully accessible, with flat access at street level, a push-button door for automatic opening, a passenger lift, a fully accessible toilet and the capability of hosting up to eight wheelchair users. We are proud hosts of regularly scheduled assisted performances, and coordinators of Space for Me, a theatre making club for children and young adults who have a particular need affecting their day-to-day life; everyone is welcome.
If visitors are feeling peckish, they can head to The Egg café. Run by the same owners as the nearby pub The Garrick’s Head, the café is situated inside the theatre’s foyer and is the perfect environment for parents and children to relax and have fun. Grow ups can enjoy sipping on hot drinks, cold drinks (or even alcoholic drinks!), whilst the little ones nestle down in the reading corner or go wild in the ball pit.
Not to mention they have a seasonal (and locally sourced!) menu, from croissants filled with gooey Nutella, to goat’s cheese Paninis dripping with warm red onion marmalade, your taste buds will thank you for eating at the egg.
The Egg Theatre – a little place with big ambition.
