English Touring Theatre | News https://www.ett.org.uk/ English Touring Theatre was set up in 1993 with the aim of bringing the best possible theatre to as many people throughout the country. At the heart of everything we do is the passionately held belief that quality theatre does not have to be elitist, and that people everywhere expect and deserve the best. This is why in addition to the work on stage we also provide a first class education programme to accompany our tours. We are committed to making our work as accessible as possible, and have extended the Friends of English Touring Theatre membership options to celebrate the support we receive from our audience. en-gb RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award 2018 https://www.ett.org.uk/news/rtst-sir-peter-hall-director-award-2018 https://www.ett.org.uk/news/rtst-sir-peter-hall-director-award-2018 Mon, 16 Apr 18 16:22:39 +0000 The Royal Theatrical Support Trust, Royal & Derngate Northampton and English Touring Theatre invite entries for the RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award 2018!
