Welcome to National Drama!

putting drama at the heart of learning

National Drama, the UK’s leading professional association for drama teachers and theatre educators, is dedicated to ensuring that all children and young people have the opportunity to learn about and through drama.

Learning through drama is a natural human process – our brains are ‘wired’ for it. We recognise it as a powerful pedagogy and a creative process that provides a compelling means of exploration, expression and making meaning. Through it we learn what it is to be a human being.

National Drama is dedicated to the development, promotion and support of Drama and Theatre both in the UK and Internationally. We are an open and inclusive organisatiuon – One Forum: Many Voices – and we positively welcome as members all those who are interested in drama and theatre in learning contexts whether in the UK or beyond: see our Membership page.

We believe that teachers need to be learning themselves, practically and theoretically – and this is why National Drama arranges high quality Drama and Theatre Conferences and Events and Publications to support Drama practice. Visit our CPD site at ND CPD; our Magazine site at Drama Magazine; our Research Journal at Drama Research and our Shop site at ND Shop for other publications and backnumbers of past issues of Drama magazine.
