INVEST IN TALENT. INSPIRE EXCELLENCE.
RADA offers world-leading education in performance and technical theatre arts. Everyone with talent, regardless of social or financial background, is encouraged to apply, upholding our founder Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree’s original pledge to give the most talented young people we can find the finest training possible.
We achieve this through practice-based learning, specialist teachers and unparalleled links to the creative industry. But this level of bespoke training needs continuous support.
RADA is a charity. The income we receive from student fees and government funding does not cover what we need to train our students to the highest standards. Every year we must raise £2 million to fulfil our core mission. We generate half of this income from various commercial activities including Short Courses, Box Office sales, Venue Hire and RADA in Business. This leaves us with £1 million to raise through philanthropic donations.
We need your support to sustain our world-leading teaching and to ensure performance and theatrecraft education is accessible for all. We need your help to educate and entertain for years to come.
