Welcome to the website of our two research projects, the first fully funded academic studies of amateur theatre in the UK.

Who can be a researcher? You!

Added on by Helen Nicholson.

We've been so pleased and surprised by the number of you who have gotten in touch, interested to be involved with this research.  It certainly verifies that this is an area of un-tapped interest and rich potential!  

In order to provide some clear ways for people to get involved and contribute, we've put together a Research Toolkit.  (Don't worry, it's only one piece A-4 paper!)  

This toolkit gives some suggestions for some ways in which you could help us to tell the untold stories of the amateur dramatics sector - through audio recording, photographs, writing and even drawing.

We need your help!  Please send us your contributions to amdramaresearch@gmail.com.
