Widening access to RWCMD

We support potential students and educational organisations to make RWCMD a place of study and visit for everyone by empowering and supporting people from underrepresented backgrounds.

Communities Engagement Partner - Guy O' Donnell

Guy works on delivering a wide range of engagement activity, working across every aspect of the College with potential students, community groups, schools, colleges, audience members, partner organisations, decision makers and the wider public.


We support potential students and educational organisations to make RWCMD a place of study, supporting prospective students from underrepresented backgrounds to find their place here at the College. This may, for example, include financial support.

School visits and talks

As part of our commitment to work with schools to widen access to the College, we may be able to visit your school to deliver a range of talks and attend events there (based on some geographical restrictions). We also may be able to arrange for visits to the College.

To request a campus or school visit, fill out our booking form.

Community ticketing scheme

RWCMD is a performance venue with a range of theatres. We work to support the public to watch the full range of performances, many of which are free and happen regularly, like AmserJazz. 

We specifically focus on supporting people who may face barriers to coming to the College. If you are a member of one of the groups below and are interested in seeing a performance at RWCMD for free, please fill this form or phone our Community Engagement Partner – Guy O’Donnell at 029 2034 2854
