Warwick is home to some of the most well-respected and active student-led theatre and performance studies societies in the country.
As part of these societies you’ll develop and perform work in the professional environment that Warwick Arts Centre has to offer from the moment that you arrive, before potentially taking it to the National Student Drama Festival (NSDF) or to the Edinburgh Fringe. These societies often return with a cache of awards. Societies include Freshblood, which is a platform for new writing; Codpiece, which specialises in devised work and adaptation; the Warwick University Dramatic Society (WUDS), which produces published plays; Shakespeare Society, which focuses on the works of the Bard; the Pantomime Society, which does what it says on the tin (oh yes it does!); Tech Crew, which supports all performance societies behind the scenes; BAME Creatives, which seeks to increase the representation of the BAME community in theatre and performance a Warwick and in the creative industries more broadly; and the all-singing, all-dancing Music Theatre Warwick. There’s also an abundance of dance, music and arts societies, as well as those geared towards academic subjects, sports, hobbies, nations and cultures.
