Your time at university will be defined by traditions. You become part of them, and they become part of you. At CBU, our finest tradition is theatre. For 50 years, scholars, students, and members of the community have come together to further the ancient practice of drama.

Since 1979 that tradition has been centred at the Boardmore Playhouse, a fully equipped, flexible theatre space that features dozens of live productions and performances every year. Work in the Boardmore is rooted in collective creation and community engagement, providing a supportive environment for students working in Applied Theatre. Nearby there is an active theatre scene featuring a range of theatres, drama schools, and heritage sites
