By making an annual donation to The Richard Attenborough Club, you are supporting talented students undertaking our renowned practice-led training.

Our curriculum is responsive to the evolving demands of the creative industries, and the needs of each individual student. One to one tuition and small group teaching with specialist practitioners, masterclasses led by industry specialists, comprehensive wellbeing services and the mentorship offered by our graduates are fundamental to our acting and technical theatre arts training.

The extensive programme of productions, showcases, short films and exhibitions staged every year give further opportunity for our students to develop their creative practice and the skills necessary to forge sustained and varied careers.

Donations gifted to the Richard Attenborough Club support the Training Excellence Fund and enable the extensive activity at the heart of our Academy: “…to give the most talented young people we can find the finest training” (Sir Herbert Beerbohm-Tree, our founder).

The Richard Attenborough Club is a donation scheme providing tax benefits for both the Academy and you, the donor. If you are a UK taxpayer, under the Gift Aid scheme, RADA can reclaim from the Inland Revenue the tax you have already paid on your gift. This means that your donation is worth 25% more to us at no extra cost to you. It is also useful to note that if you pay tax at the higher rates, you can reclaim further tax relief in your annual self-assessment tax return.
