A warm welcome to our Alumni

We’re delighted to welcome ex-members of DST to join our Alumni Network – the best way to keep in touch with the society after leaving Durham.

Around three hundred DST members graduate annually: some go into the performing arts world, some don’t. Either way, we’re delighted to offer our former members the opportunity to join our fantastic new Alumni Network. Enjoy regular updates from DST and invitations to reunions both in Durham and beyond.


Want to join our alumni network?

We would love to hear from DST Alumni and all we need are a few details.   The service is completely free, and will offer you fantastic information and opportunities DST may provide in the future. If you’re interested – please contact theatre.coordinator@durham.ac.uk
