The Nottingham New Theatre

Who Are We?

The Nottingham New Theatre is the only entirely student run theatre in the country, staging an in-house production every week of term and a further ten throughout the year in our emerging site specific external season.

We’re dedicated to providing a multitude of opportunities for our members and producing work of a professional standard.
