The National Student Drama Festival is a unique and precious thing, a registered charity that has helped generations of talented young people of all backgrounds find their home within the arts.

I had never experienced anything like it. It was during that time that I finally decided to become an actor. Simon Russell Beale CBE | NSDF 1983

NSDF is about widening access to the arts, about empowering new generations to make new things. It is a festival that aspires to make what should happen, actually happen. In order to make what should happen actually happen, NSDF needs your support. 

This past week with @NSDFest has felt like theatre’s version of Disneyland it’s that magical. Grateful to all emerging sparks met and to those who gave us their time. Proud to be a part of the #NSDF19 fam. Azan Ahmed | NSDF Company 2019

These are the most difficult financial times the organisation has faced. And although NSDF has an immense reach and huge ambitions, it is a small operation. Every and any donation will help us hugely in creating the next generation of emerging young artists, critics, producers, technicians, administrators and audience members.
