Shaun Williamson acting masterclass PLUS win a £2000 tech bundle!

Acting coach and TV sensation, Shaun Williamson (aka Barry off the tele), teaches a masterclass on how to act to maintain the Christmas spirit...


Christmas doesn’t always live up to our idealised expectations. A spoilt turkey. A baked beans jigsaw under the tree with your name on it. Being forced to play Charades...

But it's important to avoid disappointing your loved ones, and showing your friends and family that you care. So sometimes we need to act to maintain the Christmas spirit. 

Which is why we've enlisted the help of acting coach and TV sensation, Shaun Williamson (aka Barry off the tele), to reveal his most flamboyant acting techniques and tips in a series of masterclasses, for the nation's sake of surviving those awkward festive moments. 


In his first class, Shaun teaches the fine art of crying on cue... tears of joy, that is, yeah... 

Watch as Shaun teaches Hazel the art of immersion acting to help her survive Charades with cousin Margot... 



We're offering fans of Currys PC World the chance to win a £2000 festive tech bundle! Head over to the Currys PC World Facebook page, or Twitter and watch for updates from Shaun. Competition closes on 22nd December 2015. Good luck!
