Being a Festival Intern can be a hugely rewarding experience that will help you on your way to a great job in the arts. Past Festival Interns have gone on to work in a variety of settings including Wembley Arena, the Lowry Theatre and Buxton International Festival! We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly, motivated people who will thrive on the long days, variety of roles and pressure of the Festival.
