National Theatre Collection Appeal

Together we can make drama part of every child’s education

Donate in £ Donate in $

The National Theatre Collection makes the best of British theatre available worldwide to libraries, schools, universities and the wider education sector.

Our unique collection presents high quality recordings of 30 world-class productions, giving young people the best seats in the house – at school and now at home.

In response to recent events – and thanks to support from the public – the NT Collection is now available to pupils and teachers at state schools and state-funded further education colleges via remote access, in partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing. This means that, at least until the end of the academic year 2021, schools can share log-in details with pupils so they can access plays and resources at home.
