Undergraduate Open Day
10am-4pm, Sunday 26 March 2017
Our Undergraduate Open Day is the perfect opportunity to visit the Guildhall School and experience life as a student here.
As one of the top ten performing arts institutions in the world (QS World University Rankings 2016), we offer undergraduate degrees in Music, Acting, Technical Theatre, Video Design and Performance & Creative Enterprise.
At our Undergraduate Open Day we’ll have staff and students on hand to answer questions about our programmes as well as funding, accommodation and student life, and you’ll have an opportunity to drop-in to rehearsals, workshops and performances to get a flavour of what day-to-day life is like at Guildhall.
So whether your passion is classical music or spoken word, stage management or lighting design, acting or devising your own work, come along to see what we have to offer.

What to bring
For most of the day’s talks and activities, you won’t need to bring anything with you.
If you’re a wind, brass or percussion player, you're invited to take part in sessions alongside some of our musicians so you will need to bring your instrument/stick bag for percussionists and a solo piece you're working on.
If you’re interested in participating in our Creative Learning or BA Performance & Creative Enterprise music taster sessions then you’re also encouraged to bring your instrument to get involved.
More interested in our interactive Acting or Performance & Creative Enterprise movement sessions? Then all you’ll need to bring is some loose-fitting clothing, comfortable shoes and a willingness to take part.
