Taking place from 9th – 15th April, NSDF is the iconic festival for new theatre makers.

Every day at NSDF you’ll catch finished shows bursting with new ideas, check out work in progress coming alive for the first time right in front of you and then dive into debates, discussions and masterclasses.

You can take part in our extensive daily programme of workshops, from acting workshops for stage and screen, movement workshops and comedy workshops through to technical theatre and design – whatever it is you’re interested in we’ve got you covered!

All the work is made by some of the most exciting young talents in the UK, whilst all the workshops and masterclasses will be given by some of the best known names in contemporary theatre. Come and see new art, new artists and join a new nation spanning creative community.

At NSDF you can see the future now. And you can become part of it.

And every single event at NSDF is free.
