National Drama

Responding, Supporting, Leading

The UK’s foremost body of drama and theatre educators

Fight the good fight with National Drama

We’ve all struggled to keep our subject going through several national lockdowns, and the theatre industry has taken a huge hit with over 12 months of closure. We now face more challenging times as the industry opens up and hopes to get audiences back through the doors, and we continue to fight for Drama’s place in school and HE curricula at a local and national level.

Please be reassured that National Drama is fighting for our subject in whatever way we can – this includes campaigning, responding to consultations, supporting teachers and industry colleagues by providing high quality CPD, promoting new initiatives in drama education such as use of technology, and ensuring our members and friends are kept informed of all opportunities and developments in teaching and learning.

What can you do? Help us in this fight by joining National Drama today, and get in touch with how we can help you as members: to support your development or your teaching practice; inspire you with ideas and resources; or promote you if you are an industry partner.
