Open Days

Deciding which drama school will suit you best is a difficult process. Visiting at an Open Day is the best way of finding out how a school operates, its 'feel' and its identity.

Visit as many drama schools as possible so you have a sense of what's out there. Prospectuses and websites are very informative, but there's a lot to be said for gut instinct - come and judge for yourself.
