The Nottingham New Theatre

Who Are We?

The Nottingham New Theatre is the only entirely student-run theatre in England, with up to 9 live performances a week across two spaces. We host collaborations with Nottingham Lakeside Arts and take shows to both the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and National Student Drama Festival. Being fully student-run, we offer countless roles both on and off-stage, from acting to set design; directing to sound design.

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