LAMDA stands for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and is one of the oldest examining bodies in the country. RABBLE Theatre encourages students to take part in LAMDA examinations to instil confidence and an appreciation of the English Language. We aim to give performance opportunities to as many people as possible across Reading and Berkshire, regardless of age or experience.

Our 5-6pm Public Speaking Class is open to all members of the public aged between 12-18 years old.

As well as a face-to-face class, we also offer an online option to join the class via Zoom.

In RABBLE’s LAMDA classes, students will get to work with professional actors and teachers to perfect their pieces for performance at a drama night and for their LAMDA examination.

LAMDA exams will be held at least once a year at the school. Students gain so much confidence from performing their work and always thoroughly enjoy their achievements.

If you’d like to find out more about RABBLE LAMDA or would like to enrol, please contact us.

Want to get involved but don't have the funds?

If you are thinking I’d love to experience that, but you need help with some or all of the fees, then why not apply to the RABBLE Access Fund? The aim of the Access Fund is to make sure that everyone can access our work. You may want to send your child to our Saturday School, or you yourself might fancy a term of Get Up On Stage. Perhaps you want your community group or school to come to a production. Whatever it is, you can apply to us and we’ll see if we can help. You can apply for 50% of 100% of the cost of your ticket(s)/fees.

To apply, either send us a video or write us an email, explaining who you are, why you want to attend and a little about your situation. Don’t worry, all your information is completely confidential and the benefactors are never revealed (unless they really want to be).

If you are interested in applying to the fund for all or part of your fees, please state so on your enrolment form. There is no cash equivalent.

“My entire education – school, a year abroad, university and drama school – was funded through bursaries, so it feels pretty amazing to now be involved in a charity that’s enabling others to gain skills and get more involved with the community.” Toby Davies, RABBLE Theatre’s Artistic Director

“Thank you. My son has learnt a lot about how to put together and deliver a speech.”
