PERFORM, an event for those studying or working in the performing arts industry, is returning to London Olympia for 2013. Brand new for this year, PERFORM will have its own separate venue from its sister event, MOVE IT.
Along with over 60 seminars and workshops, as well as 50 exhibitors in attendance, there is the new addition of a Teachers’ Area – which will be hosted by Teaching Drama magazine.
The Teachers’ Area will enable visitors to come together and network: sharing ideas and tips about teaching drama. The area is intended for drama teachers and practitioners or those who are just starting out in the profession. There will also be a number of free talks to attend from leading professionals in drama teaching.
PERFORM will take place at London Olympia from 8–10 March. To find out more information about the events taking place and to book a ticket to attend, visit www.performshow.co.uk.
