Meet The Team

Hold the Drama formed in 2017 as Open Academy Fellows at the Royal Academy of Music, and began performing in Spring 2018 with a tour of Stripes across schools in Tower Hamlets and North London. Together the Hold the Drama team have worked on projects performing and devising music with people of all ages in association with some of London’s leading concert venues including the Wigmore Hall, Glyndebourne Opera, The Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall.
