National Student Drama Festival

NSDF is a charity dedicated to helping young people all of backgrounds access and engage with the arts. The mission of the festival is to empower and inspire young talent and ambition, teach skills and help launch careers and build audiences of tomorrow.

Over the years, NSDF has hosted hundreds of workshops, discussions, debates and masterclasses with some of the most talented professionals in British theatre.

Due to the current climate, the festival (which was meant to take place at Curve in Leicester) will now take part in a new, online format. The festival will be available to thousands online, reaching new audiences across the UK, for free.

When will the festival take place

The festival has kept the same planned dates of 4-10 April. Workshops will run throughout the day and into the evening with special events.

How to take part in the festival

Workshops and activities will take place online via Zoom. On-demand versions will also stream on their YouTube channel and Facebook page. Participants view the workshop they’re interested in and, when live, click the link to view or join.

To make sure participants and workshop leaders are safe online, NSDF has put new strict measures in place. All parts of the festival will take place via the Zoom app, with no recording from any participant and workshop leader. Online meetings will also only be held at specified times and in ‘neutral spaces’. More information NSDF’s safeguarding measures can be found in their programme.
