Gareth Gates and Faye Brookes are joining forces and launching ‘Fates Academy’ a new performing arts academy in Manchester.

The singer and the Coronation Street actress will be opening the academy at Media City, Salford, which is close to the Corrie studios, meaning that Faye can spend a lot of time at the academy.

Fates Academy will help develop young performers’ skills, teaching them singing, acting and dancing and who better to teach them than this extremely talented pair?

The academy will be based at University Technical College and will open every Tuesday from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. Classes will be open to three different age groups: 5 to 8 years old, 9-12 years old and 13-18 years old.
