Support Us


Cygnet is a completely independent Drama school which has been training young professional actors for the past 40 years.
We currently receive no funding for the delivery of our training and staging of our shows. Our income comes from the fees students pay (£2500 per term) and box office from our shows.
Our students have to self-fund their training since they are not eligible for student loans or maintenance grants. This places considerable pressure on students and their families. Over the years many talented young performers from less well-off families have not been able to join the training as the financial burden was too high.

Are you able to help us?



Even if you are not able to give much extra cash, please do continue to support our work. The experience of playing to an audience is one of the most valuable parts of the students training.

Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to the Theatre soon.
