PQA Lincoln provides a unique opportunity for children and young adults from 4 – 18 years to receive quality training in performing arts, covering Drama & Comedy, Musical Theatre and Film & Television.

Operating from Lincoln College on Saturday mornings, the Academy offers training that covers all aspects of performing arts and teaches skills involved in acting for stage and screen, filmmaking and the elements of musical theatre. Four and Five year olds have their own exciting programme of themed classes.


Part of a successful organisation established by actress Pauline Quirke over ten years ago, PQA is not a franchise but benefits from being part of a professional network that offers exciting opportunities including West End and regional performances, regional and national film festivals, exciting competitions and its own venue at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. PQA also has its own online TV channel and a full-time academy for students ready to take the next step within the industry.


Having celebrated our first anniversary in May, PQA Lincoln has already taken part in so many exciting projects, successfully completed numerous short films (including some fantastic location shoots) and had a visit from an International Actor. We have been put through our paces in two Masterclasses with the fabulous professional companies Long Lane Theatre and Stage Combat experts True Edge, and obtained a whole academy pass rate in our first set of acting exams through Trinity College London – With distinction across the board! Even our Poppets (age 4-6) have performed two lovely plays, produced their own shot film ‘Silly-itis’ and taken part in a Young Performers Award, as well as enjoying learning through exciting themed sessions each week.
