The Festival and Event Management Masterclass is a popular 2 day programme designed to inform and inspire anyone involved in creating, managing and developing festivals and events. It is a highly practical course full of ideas and examples that participants can put into practice immediately to improve their events. It features sessions on key tasks and challenges for those involved in festivals and events both large and small including Marketing, Press, Programming, Evaluation, Sponsorship and Fundraising.  We have also added a new section to cover how events can survive and thrive the Covid-19 pandemic.
