Welcome to Rose Bruford College

Welcome to Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance. Our goal is to inspire, excite and train you as a creative artist and practitioner who can use reflective practice and research,along with the world class teaching we provide, as tools to become an independent thinker and a fulfilled and successful working professional.

The teaching, learning and training ethos at Rose Bruford College places stress on artistry, collaboration, community, discovery, diversity, employability, independence, and professionalism. Students and staff work in a close-knit environment on our beautiful parkland campus to make and produce over 75 shows a year.

Some productions are shown elsewhere in London, some are taken on tour in the UK and abroad. Out of this lively atmosphere have come the next generation of performers, designers, technicians and companies who are changing the face of global theatre and live events. 

On this site we give you a taste for what Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance is like.  We encourage you to visit us for an Open Day or at a time when you can see student work onstage. Throughout the year we perform seasons of work across our many programmes and hold an annual Graduate Exhibition for final year students from our School of Design, Management and Technical Arts.

Please come and see any of that work. A total world of theatre awaits you. Imagine yourself here by coming here to see and experience Rose Bruford College for yourself.
