Fates Academy!

Faye and Gareth have announced plans to open a new performing arts academy. The talented pair will be teaching aspiring young performers how to teach, sing, act and dance.

Fates Academy, based at University Technical College (UTC) at MediaCityUK will teach three age groups - five to eight-year-olds, nine to 12-year-olds and 13 to 18-year-olds every Tuesday from 4.30pm to 7.30pm

Faye is hoping to bring in her Corrie co-stars and producers to teach masterclasses at Fates and the school, which will also prepare youngsters for auditions, aims to put on two shows each year.

The new academy will be offering young talent a place to learn – something she didn’t have herself growing up, Up North.

“There was nothing like this drama school around when I was that age and setting this up is a dream of mine. And working so close by makes it easier to bring people from Corrie in to do masterclasses.

“I would love my co-stars to come in and it’s definitely something we can look at doing.

“I hope that we can inspire the next generation of Coronation Street stars.”

Gareth of course is a talented perfomer himself, he started singing when he was eight, plays the piano, guitar and drums and goes back on tour across the UK with Footloose The Musical next month.

He said: “I already have three performing arts schools in Braford, Huddersfield and Milton Keynes and with Faye doing so well in Corrie and being on TV every night, we though that between us we could really bring a lot of experience to kids who want to perform.

“We have both worked in the industry for years and it’s perfect to open at MediaCity which is literally a stone’s throw from the Coronation Street studios.

“Faye only works two minutes away and will probably be there most weeks and I will be there when I can.”

I'd like to wish them luck for their new venture but I have no doubts it will be a massive success, with Faye and Gareth at the helm how could it not.
