Why Attend

Within 5 years Music & Drama Education Expo has become the biggest brand in music & drama education in Europe! Our London show quickly outgrew its venue and now attracts leading brands in the industry and everyone wants to be part of it.

We have therefore decided to take the show on the road to give every music & drama pedagogue the chance to take part in what has become a ‘must-attend’ in their CPD calendar!

Join us on 10th October at Old Trafford for a day which guarantees to transform your teaching and refresh your approach to music & drama education.

Our aim? To share the latest educational trends and approaches, present a number of inspirational workshops to motivate our delegates, offer up a number of networking opportunities and showcase an exhibition floor packed with hundreds of products, resources and instruments for everyone to try.

Networking opportunities

What happens when you put 1,000 passionate music and drama educators in one room? Lots of great conversation, of course! We know how important the sharing of ideas is, particularly when so many teachers find themselves running one person departments.

Expect a number of networking ‘happenings’ across our theatres and catering areas so that you can meet friends old and new, make some new contacts and take away lots of inspiring ideas. Peer-to-peer sharing – it’s what it’s all about!

Exhibition floor

How often do you get the chance to try out a huge number of products all in one room?

Our exhibition floor features some of the leading retailers, publishers, institutions and organisations in the music and drama sector. Representing a number of brands, you’ll be able to browse and compare a number of products and resources, ensuring you find the right match for your studio, classroom or department.

And the even better news? Most of our exhibitors will be offering exclusive show discounts for the duration of the event.

Did we mention that the show is absolutely free to attend? Yes, we said FREE!
