Welcome to the Music and Drama Education Awards

Welcome to the Music & Drama Education Awards 2025, in which we celebrate the extraordinary contribution made by professionals, schools, companies, charities and other organisations to the lives of others through the medium of these two key performing arts.

The two sectors which these awards celebrate – performing arts and education – have faced unprecedented challenges in recent years. The people who provide performing arts education in the UK have continued undaunted to produce exceptional work and to support innumerable students of all ages. These awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate those achievements.

Our winners are chosen by a prominent panel of expert judges who have the knowledge and expertise to reward the extraordinary talent, projects, organisations and products of this rich and diverse sector.

We wish all nominees luck and thank you for the brilliant work you do to nurture the talent of the future and increase engagement with the arts.
