With 2,500 visitors from over 40 countries, Music & Drama Education Expo | London is the perfect networking opportunity and serves as a sharing platform for private tutors, peripatetic teachers as well as single-teacher departments which are so common in the performing arts education landscape.

Introducing our Sharing Lab at the 2017 show, we have now expanded that aspect of the event to give teachers and practitioners alike the chance to find each other and exchange ideas.
