The health and safety of everyone at RADA is our number one priority and we are proud to be See it Safely approved by Official London Theatre, so students, staff and visitors who visit and work inside our buildings can feel confident are always COVID-secure based on the latest UK Government and NHS guidelines.

Face coverings are expected in all public areas, offices, and audience environments except where a legal exemption applies. This is to support the continued welfare and safety of students, staff and visitors. If you are exempt, we would appreciate if you could advise front of house staff or reception on arrival.

As we welcome back students, applicants, staff and visitors, we will continue to review our schedule of activity around training, courses, auditions and events in light of any UK Government directives.

We advise any students and staff doing in-person work in at RADA to familiarise themselves with the latest RADA COVID-19 Remobilisation Plan available on ourĀ Sharepoint.

Thank you.
