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 'Northanger Abbey' in Durham Castle, 'Frankenstein' as an online radio animation, 'Measure for Measure' in the Assembly Rooms, and 'All's Well That Ends Well', which will be touring the UK in the summer of 2021.
