London Drama is the Professional Association for drama teachers, lecturers, teachers-in-training, theatre practitioners and others concerned with any aspect of Drama/Theatre Education. We link Drama across the inner and outer London region.
Founded in 1955 to organise drama festivals across the London Boroughs, London Drama has developed and maintained an active network of drama teachers and theatre workers. Because we are run by teachers for teachers we know what teachers need – good quality practical support, stimulus and new ideas! We see our role as keeping drama teachers in touch with one another via Day Workshops and Evening Courses at which members exchange drama ideas, and curriculum management experience.
Our annual two-day non-residential Conference at Goldsmiths, University of London, has attracted international participants from Greece, the Netherlands and Japan as well as being a rallying point and stimulus for drama teachers in UK. We always showcase the work of a London based Youth Theatre at this event.
Our aim is to support drama practice in order to maintain and develop an active Drama Teaching community of new and experienced drama and theatre practitioners.
