Looking forward to Michaelmas 2023!

We have had a wonderful year full of a huge variety of shows, made up of comedy, musical theatre, our own Shakespeare festival, celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Playwright’s first folio and more! We can’t wait to welcome incoming freshers and new members back to DST in the Autumn, but in the mean time check out our social media to keep up to date with how we got on at Fringe!

DST is a refuge for us to express ourselves creatively and artistically and encourage diversity and inclusion.
