Internship programme 2016

Do you see yourself working in the arts? Want to gain some experience? Look no further!

In 2016 the placements will run from 4th July – 27th July in Buxton.  While the placements are unpaid we do provide simple accommodation in Buxton and £500 towards your food and travel expenses.

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 Festival!  Being a Festival Intern is also VERY hard work.  We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly, motivated people who will thrive on the long days, variety of roles and pressure of the Festival.

There are two types of internship available:

Festival Intern:

  • operating the Festival opera surtitles (some additional rehearsals w/c 24th June)
  • page-turning
  • stewarding events
  • front-of-house duties
  • venue set-up
  • general ‘running’
  • admin in the Festival office

Literary Series Intern:

  • venue set-up
  • front of house duties
  • liaising with authors
  • author meet and greet
  • general ‘running’
  • admin in the Festival office

You will have the chance to see as many Festival events as you can get to from world-class opera, to the best of UK chamber music to the famous faces of our literary series.

Competition for these exciting and rewarding roles is strong and places are limited.  If you would like to apply please send a CV and covering letter detailing which role you are applying for, and any relevant skills and experience you think you could bring to the role to lily@buxtonfestival.co.uk.

Closing date – 18th March 2015
