ArtsEd Launches Regional Auditions for Acting Degree


ArtsEd is constantly seeking the UK’s most exciting new acting talent. To this end, in early 2018 we will hold auditions for our BA Acting course outside of London for the first time, in Manchester and Swansea. The audition process will include an illuminating insight into our BA Acting course and daily life at ArtsEd from key ArtsEd tutors and alumni.

Gareth Farr, Director of the School of Acting sees the regional auditions as an essential step in the continuing development of ArtEd’s outstanding training offer:

“We know that there are fantastic young actors right across the country. However, students with exceptional potential can’t always make it to a London audition, so we want to bring the audition to you. If you want to train at drama school then we want to see YOU at one of our auditions.”

Each audition session will start with a warm-up workshop led by an ArtsEd Acting Tutor, candidates will then be required to perform two monologues. Successful applicants will be invited to a recall audition in London. Here you will learn more about ArtsEd’s distinctive training, split 50/50 between stage and screen techniques, view our excellent facilities and experience the uniquely vibrant atmosphere of our Chiswick home.

Audition Dates:

Swansea – Saturday 20th January 2018
Manchester – Saturday 3rd February 2018
London – dates available November – June
