Welcome to BUST! We are a family of actors, directors, playwrights, producers, and students putting on performances throughout the year, running fun weekly informal workshops and having a blast at weekly socials.

Reasons to join us

We’ve been performing since 1968 and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! Last year we performed eleven times and are planning to do the same if not even more this year. Whether you want to perform on stage, practice at our workshops, or just spend time at our socials, BUST is the society for you!

But don’t take our word for it, check out all the sweet awards we’ve won!

  • In 2012, we swept the floor with Best Overall Society, Best Society Event, (Sleeping Beauty the Pantomime), and Best Overall Activity Group.

  • In 2013, we won Best Society Event for our performance of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

  • In 2017, we won Best Arts Society, two of our committee members cried, and we all felt very warm and fuzzy inside.

  • In 2018, we won Best Society Event and Best Overall Event. More tears. More warm and fuzzy feelings.

Come and Meet Us

If you aren’t part of our fantastic family, but want to be, come along to our amazing events during freshers’ week - you can find more information on the freshers’ page! If you fancy sticking around, have a look at the productions we’ve got lined up and check out our social media pages too! Don’t forget, if you want to be involved but not on the stage then there’s so much more to do, from being part of a production team to weekly workshops (and socials!).

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask any members of the committee, even during the summer as we count down the days to a new BUST year!
