What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


With the gulf between richer and poorer growing ever wider in our society and the cost of drama schools having risen to over £9000 a year (Not to mention living costs) it is becoming increasingly hard for young people of a less affluent background to be able to pursue their dreams of working in the arts.

I set up Les Enfants Terribles when I was 19 years old. I had no qualifications, I didn't go to drama school or university.
My father was a builder and my mother worked for the NHS. There was no way they could have afforded £30,000 for me to train as an actor.

15 years later I see now how difficult it would have been for someone like me to get a foothold in this industry.

I've been lucky and it is essential for people in our position to try and help redress the balance and do what we can to help support the next generation of artists.

We are very honoured to be working in conjunction with RADA one of the most successful and well-respected conservatoire drama schools in the UK on this project.

The winning recipient will receive the bursary towards their tuition fees for RADA's full time professional acting course.

If you've struggled in this industry and still are, give us the cost of a coffee.
If you've struggled and are now doing ok, give us the cost of a dinner.
If you've never had to struggle, give us what you wont miss.
Everyone deserves a chance.
Help us to change someones life and let them to follow their dreams.

Many thanks,
Oli Lansley

    I would never have been able to go to drama school had I not been lucky enough to receive a DaDA scholarship. Great cause.
