The Jocelyn Herbert lecture series was established at the National Theatre in collaboration with University of the Arts London with a grant from the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation to provide funding for ten lectures. The aims of the lectures are to increase public awareness of a largely invisible discipline within an otherwise closely monitored activity, to increase the status of the discipline within the academic environment and to honour Herbert (1917-2003) for her role in revolutionising the look and feel of post-war British theatre.The Jocelyn Herbert Archive is now housed at the National Theatre Archive and is open to all by appointment.

The 10th Jocelyn Herbert lecture will be written by Dame Harriet Walter in 2021
