We’re delighted to be organising another BSL Level 1 Course led by the brilliant tutor John Mancini. The course will be held in Bristol and is for artists, creatives, producers and staff working at cultural organisations. 

Some feedback from previous BSL courses led by John that we have run:

I really can’t find any fault with the BSL L1 course;  it was tremendous. The lessons were incredibly intensive and immersive,  but also very manageably paced (with regular breaks, which were  essential!) and crucially it was a lot of fun. The teaching from John was simply superb

I thought the course was totally great! Really helpful to learn a related skill but with a bunch of theatre peeps!”

There’s very limited availability of intensive courses like this, and with my irregular work patterns it’s hard to commit to an entire term of evening classes, so I really appreciate Ad Infinitum putting it on

At the end of the course there is the option to take a nationally-recognised level one qualification from the exam board Signature.

PLEASE NOTE We will also be offering Level 2 and Level 3 courses online in the Spring. More details will be confirmed asap.

The cost of this course is £220 per person. The assessment at the end of the course is optional, and will be an additional £129.

The course will be held at Watershed, Bristol from Monday 13 – Friday 17 December, 9:30 – 4:30pm each day. The optional Level 1 assessment will take place on the last day of the course.

We will be holding the course in accordance with Covid-19 government guidelines, and asking everyone attending the course to take lateral flow tests. Further information on this will be shared with all participants, and we will be asking you to follow these guidelines throughout the course. Please get in touch if you would like more information before booking.

If the course cannot go ahead because of a change in Covid-19 government guidelines then we will look to rearrange, with any money already paid to be reimbursed in full.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, and we will require a 30% deposit on booking to secure your place. The remaining balance will be due by Wednesday 1 December. If you would like more information about the course or want to book a place then please email

If you need to cancel for any reason 14 or less days before the start of the course, including for Covid-19 related reasons, our refund policy is as follows:

·      Up to 14 days before: 50% refund minus assessment fee and non-refundable deposit

·      Up to 7 days before: 30% refund minus assessment fee and non-refundable deposit

·      Less than a week’s notice: a refund will not be possible

Please understand that Ad Infinitum is liable to pay the cost of the teaching fee to the tutor, so if someone cancels with less than a week’s notice it will not be possible for us to fill that place on the course, and we will still need to pay the tutor his fee. Thanks for your patience and understanding on this issue, and please note that by booking your place you are agreeing to these terms.
