Castle Theatre Company is the oldest student theatre company in Durham. While primarily affiliated with University College, we aim to offer extensive performance opportunities to the dramatically inclined across the University. Besides our plays and an annual Shakespeare tour around the UK and USA, we host other performance-based events such as poetry evenings and comedy cabarets.


Highlights from recent years include 'Someone Who'll Watch Over Me' in Durham Castle's Norman Chapel, the D'Oscar award-winning Best Play 'Motherland' and 'Twelfth Night', which toured to the USA in 2018.
