The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019

3 - 10 December 2019

RADA is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge from 3 - 10 December, an annual online funding campaign which helps to double your donations.

We are committed to inclusive, transformative training, that promotes diversity across our student body. We actively reduce barriers to our training seeking participation from young people regardless of economic circumstances, cultural heritage, disability or social class.

RADA is reliant on funding to deliver our educational programmes to young people across London.

We work with young people aged 8-24 from all backgrounds, and in 2019 we reached more young people than ever through our widening participation activities in over 40 workshops, productions and programmes.

We believe that the dramatic arts are stronger when created by a diverse range of voices, and all funds raised from the Big Give Christmas Challenge will enable us to create pathways into training for young people under-represented in the arts.

Help us continue to create opportunities to inspire the next generation of theatre makers.

Donations made through The Big Give Christmas Challenge support outreach projects including:

  • Partnerships with primary schools in London and youth organisations working with at risk young people, encouraging participation from people from disadvantaged backgrounds from an early age
  • Technical theatre taster sessions, aimed at encouraging diverse applications in technical theatre
  • Regional access workshops, targeted at low-income young people outside of London who may not have access to drama locally
