4th – 6th September

University of Exeter

The Drama Department at the University of Exeter is delighted to host the 2019 annual conference. The conference will be held at the University of Exeter from 4-6th September, with activities taking place in the Drama studios and across our stunning campus.

Postgraduates wishing to apply for a bursary should complete an application form, you can access that form by clicking here.


There are several types of payment depending on your circumstances. Please see below for details of prices. All delegates are to register either as Standard or Concession rates (Life Members, Prize Winners or Board Members excepted).

Concessions apply to all postgraduate researchers, unwaged and retired researchers, and staff on contracts of less that 0.6FTE or else fixed for less than 12 months. This applies to the delegate’s circumstances on the first day of the conference.

For publishers attending the conference, the first representative will pay the full conference fee, with further colleagues eligible to pay fees at concession rates.


Standard rate full: £245 (Early Bird: £215)

Standard day rate: £140

Concession: £142 (Early Bird: £112)

Concession day rate: £107

The early bird rate will expire on the 24nd of June 2019. Those booking after that date will pay the full fee for their tier.

On the online store, you will need to click through to whichever tier you’d like to register at (standard or concession) and then choose either the full conference or the day rate and add optional extras such as accommodation and dinner.

Please note unless you click either ‘full conference’ or ‘day rate’ the price will show as £0 and you will not have registered for the conference, even if you ‘check out’ and pay for accommodation etc.

All conference registrations include TaPRA Membership at the rate of £35 for standard delegates and £17 for concessions.

Programme details will be released in the summer of 2019.
