Performing arts

If you want to keep up your acting, singing or dancing or get involved behind the scenes alongside your studies, then there are lots of performance societies you can join at Loughborough Students’ Union. Students, staff and the general public can enjoy the productions and showcase event which these societies put on each year.

Throughout the year our own events programme may include one-off workshops with dance or theatre companies, talks by actors and directors and special film screenings and discussion events.

In partnership with the student-run cinema Flix, we regularly host National Theatre (NT) Live screenings, bringing the very best of British theatre to the cinema screen of Cope Auditorium – and at a fraction of the price of a theatre ticket.

If you are a talented performer with a passion for the arts, then you might want to apply for our annual Performing Arts scholarship. As well as receiving a cash prize, the scholarship winner gets a tailored package of tuition or mentoring to develop their talents further. There are also opportunities to perform during the year.
