Phone Shop' and 'Family Tree' star Tom Bennett paid a visit to Clapham performing arts school, Forecast Academy, earlier this month to give a workshop on comedy acting.

Fresh off the plane from LA, where he just finished filming a new US comedy pilot for CBS, Bennett spent four hours teaching Forecast students aged 13-19 the secrets of comedy acting, answering questions on his career so far and sharing his experiences working with Chris O'Dowd and Ricky Gervais.

This is just one of the many exclusive workshops Forecast students have been treated to over the last months: previous workshops have included 'acting through song' with West End leading lady Julie Atherton and a songwriting workshop with commercial RnB artist Tawiah.

Forecast Academy school is a weekly Saturday school that runs from 1-5pm at Lambeth College, Clapham Common - see for details
