Ready, Set, Revise

Although exams can be daunting, there is nothing more rewarding than being able to show your tutor or lecturers how much you’ve learnt and receive credit for doing so.  

It may be that this year some of your exams are online, or that they follow a different format you have not come across before. Your department will be able to advise you about how they will work and what to expect, but in the meantime Ready, Set, Revise is here to help you prepare to perform your best.

World Theatre Day 2021

Celebrated annually on 27th March, World Theatre Day is a great excuse to embrace all varieties of theatre. Like us, we’re sure that many of you are missing attending plays and shows in person. With theatres and cinemas closed, we’ve resorted to streaming live theatre from the comfort of our homes or subscribing to streaming channels to get our fix of film and drama. Whether you’re a drama or film student, or simply enjoy musicals and Shakespeare in your free time, we hope you’ll find these resources of use to you.

World Poetry Day 2021

World Poetry Day is celebrated on 21st March each year, since 1999 when UNESCO first adopted the day for this purpose. As poetry began as an oral tradition, UNESCO’s aim was to promote readings and spoken word to give a voice to all communities across the world. Poetry gives us all the opportunity to express ourselves as with theatre, dance, music and painting, therefore it is hoped that World Poetry can ‘restore the dialogue’ between the arts and help individuals within society with their sense of identity.
