We are holding an Open Day in October 2019 for our Applied Theatre and Stage Management courses only.

This event will give applicants for these two courses an opportunity to see our facilities, find out more about the course, and meet staff and current students. Stage Management applicants will also have the chance to get a free ticket to watch one of our productions, stage managed by our students, followed by a backstage tour. Whereas Applied Theatre applicants will be able to observe a workshop in action. 

The event will take place on Wednesday 23 October between 10am and *5pm (*end time is approximate, and depends on the activities you are involved in on the day, see schedule below). Please note that this Open Day will not include any information on our music and acting courses, and is therefore not suitable for applicants interested in applying to BA Acting or BMus Music.

Open Day schedule*

For both courses the event will start at 10am with a presentation about student support, followed by an opportunity to view University student accommodation at 11am. If you do not wish to attend these sessions please feel free to arrive for 12pm.
