Off Stage

Wednesday 9 October 2019

10.00am to 5.00pm

The health and well being of your people is your priority. Explore practical ways to embed sustainability and safety in your day to day practice and prepare for what's on the horizon.           

Off Stage focuses on the crucial aspects of theatre that the general public cannot see but are integral to a successful performance going ahead. 

This conference will explore venue related building issues, environmental and sustainability improvements, health & safety initiatives and hands-on technical & production management.  

Network, learn and be inspired by speakers working in and outside the theatre industry, as well as with colleagues from across the UK. You will leave with practical ideas and support for you to take back to your organisation
