Welcome to the Society of British Theatre Designers.

We are here for our members, friends and those interested in our activities.

The Society was created to benefit you and your profession - to explore and further the role of the designer within the arts today. Your membership can make a difference.

As a professional and social organisation run by designers for the benefit of designers, the SBTD is best placed to support us in our working lives.

Blue Pages is the Society of British Theatre Designers' quarterly journal. It is sent out to all members (Professional, Graduate, Student, Associates and Retired) as part of their subscription. Containing a diverse range of articles on contemporary performance design practice from innovative practitioners across the disciplines of performing and visual arts, architecture, research and education, this is a must read for all those with an interest in our field.
