We’re delighted to announce the next UK Musical Theatre Conference will be on Friday 15th March 2019 so urge you to reserve that date in your diaries now. For the first time the Conference will be held outside of London, at Royal & Derngate, Northampton (just 50 minutes by train from Euston, for those who are London-based).
We will be sending out a more detailed invitation with booking links and details of the content in January. For now, we can announce the Conference will have a focus on mid-scale touring of new musicals, as part of the three year musical theatre initiative at Royal & Derngate, Northampton, funded by Arts Council England, to develop new musicals for mid-scale venues.
Our 2017 UK Musical Theatre Conference, ‘High Flying Adored? – Redefining success in new musical theatre in the UK’ in March 2017 at Lyric Hammersmith, was the highest attended to date, with a very positive response from attendees about the calibre of industry expertise shared throughout the day (past speakers have included Rupert Gould, Gurinder Chadha, Jamie Hendry, and Jenny Sealey). We look forward to welcoming new and repeat Conference attendees to Northampton in March!
