Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club
- CUADC

Founded in 1855, the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (or CUADC) is the oldest University dramatic society in England - and the largest dramatic society in Cambridge. We're at the very heart of one of the liveliest student theatre scenes in the country. We stage an exciting and diverse range of productions every term, most of them at the ADC Theatre in Park Street, where we are the resident company. We regularly stage shows at other Cambridge venues, annually at the Edinburgh Fringe and occasionally on tour abroad.

For more information, see the CUADC website or contact the CUADC president

The event is open to self defining BME students only from 2-3pm, and will be held in the ADC Bar. Anyone with as much or as little theatre experience is welcome. After 3pm, the discussion will be opened up to members of various theatre committees (ie. CUMTS, Footlights). We encourage committees to partake so that they can better identify and tackle issues pertaining to race. This discussion follows a letter written to CUADC by the BME theatre community calling for action. We will publish the outcome of the discussion. Please do come, and invite your friends, and help change Cambridge theatre for the better!
