Schools Theatre Day
On Thursday 6 October, we will be celebrating the importance of school theatre visits with a PR and Social Media moment and launching a new online resource for schools in partnership with Mousetrap Theatre Projects. The Schools Theatre Guide will provide teachers with everything they need for planning a trip to a London Theatre, linking directly to shows and venues’ education programmes.
We encourage theatres across the country to get involved on social media using #SchoolsTheatreDay to share and highlight the work they are already doing with schools. School trips have dipped post pandemic, so we need to remind schools and parents about the opportunities available and the educational benefits.
UK Theatre Awards
UK Theatre is pleased to announce the UK Theatre Awards 2022 Nominations. Please view the list of nominees here.
All nominations have also been announced on the UK Theatre twitter account #UKTAwards.
TheatreCraft Ticket Request
TheatreCraft takes place on Tuesday 25 October and we are looking for a small number of complimentary tickets for performances that evening to offer to the volunteers. They will be going to young people who wouldn’t usually be able to afford the ticket price.
We are looking for 5 shows to offer 3 pairs of tickets. If you are able to provide tickets, please contact Kayley – we’d really appreciate it.
We’re trialling more dynamic adverts as part of our PPC strategy, so if your show or theatre has a clause for no third party PPC please let Megan know.
