Workshops for Schools and Colleges

The workshops will be published ahead of the festival. There will be informal sessions that take place each morning, giving the students a chance to talk to actors, directors, writers, producers, designers and stage managers about the realities of working in the industry and get advice on how to launch their careers.

Once the programme is announced, you and your students can browse the programme and then book online on a first come first served basis ahead of the festival week.

If you are bringing a larger group, we may be able to programme workshops that are specific to your students’ interests and/or curriculum. Please get in touch at least 6 weeks before the Festival if you would like us to arrange something like this.

Arts Award

The Festival is an Arts Award Supporter. Some of the Festival activity can contribute towards your student’s Arts Award and we will support them. For example: joining the Technical Team or Management Team and participating in workshops or writing reviews and articles for our Noises Off Team which may then feature in a portfolio.

For more information go to the Arts Award website or get in touch with our team at NSDF to discuss. 

If you'd like more information about bringing a school group to NSDF, please complete this short form and we will be in touch.
