We’re hiring for our 2021 festival team!

June 25, 2021

Want to work at a classical music festival?
We’re putting together a crack team for this year’s summer festival and we’re looking for Event Managers, Artists Managers and Event Assistants

Set in the stunning scenery of the Lake District, you’ll join a great team of festival staff and volunteers working to deliver a whole mixture of live classical concerts, masterclasses, online streaming, workshops and cross-arts events including dance, visual art and silent film.

From stage management, box office, and front of house duties to working with the UK’s finest musicians and more. This is an ideal opportunity for those wishing to gain experience working hands-on in the arts sector. Applicants are required to be available for the entirety of the period covering from lunchtime Tuesday 27 July until the afternoon of Monday 9 August 2021.

Event Manager and Artist Manager positions are paid posts, while Event Assistants are on a voluntary basis. However, for all team members accommodation will be provided at the University of Cumbria campus in Ambleside throughout this period, breakfast and per diems will be provided, and expenses are paid.

All festival team members will receive first aid training, gaining a nationally recognised qualification which will be valid for 3 years.

A knowledge of classical music, having a full driving licence and access to a vehicle are preferable, but not necessarily essential. Please include this information in your application.
