Lewis Bentley
It has been a true honour to have had the opportunity to be President of Drama Soc this year, and it would be a privilege to carry on, and fully realise the foundations that have been laid. I have gained a really strong range of Drama contacts both within and outside the UCL world, of which will enable us to hold more in person events.

In what has been a turbulent year to say the least, what next year needs are opportunities and activities above all else. Having held a year in the role, this has given me a great understanding into not just the inner workings of Drama society, but the Arts community as a whole. Inclusivity is the ethos that I hold very close to my heart and will ensure that there are spaces for everyone within the society, creating festivals and platforms, as well as offering opportunities to perform for those with less experience.

My leadership skills have been shown not just through Drama Presidency last year, but through directing plays and musicals, such as UCL’s Classical Play 2021, The Odyssey, and assistant directing Legally Blonde. On top of that I was Workshops coordinator, as well as experience coaching football (both youth and adult) prior to joining UCL.

Ultimately, this is a role I immensely enjoy and feel that I have the experience to ensure that the society continues as we transition back into a more normal way of life. I’m sure I’ll see you all very soon at a Mully’s Karaoke night!
