Management Team

Applications for the Management Team will open in Autumn. 

The Management Team helps us to produce the Festival. Working as part of the Workshop, Front of House or Box Office team, you will assist visiting artists in their workshops, liaise with the shows produced by 16-25 year olds that are selected to come to the Festival, look after audiences and run our evening events such as the famous quiz, the cabaret and all the themed parties.

This year, as part of your training, you’ll attend workshops with leading producers and theatre managers on topics like how to get your first job in the arts, how to fundraise and producing masterclasses.


Everyone on the Management Team was amazing, so welcoming and lovely to work with – made what is already an incredible festival I would’ve had a good time at, into an excellent experience I will remember forever.

As a member of the team, whenever you can, you’ll be able to attend any of the other workshops on the programme (take a look at our Archive to see the full programme of workshops we had at NSDF 18), see the productions and participate in the daily discussions.

Being on the Management Team gives you loads of demonstrable experience in a professional theatre and events management setting, and it’s a whole lot of fun.

No experience is necessary!
