INTERNSHIP SCHEME

The Founder-Director of the English Music Festival is currently offering part-time internships of a minimum of six months. These can commence at any point during the year. The work will average between 5 and 12 hours a week (depending partly on the amount of time the intern has available) and can be done from home, although occasional meetings in London or Oxfordshire with the Director might be necessary.

 

Although this is a voluntary post, all expenses incurred in the discharge of the intern’s duties will be fully reimbursed.

 

This internship would be especially appropriate for those wishing to begin a career in arts, concert management or PR. Benefits include:

 

  • The opportunity to be involved with the running and management of a prestigious music festival
  • Establishing contacts with artists and agents
  • Establishing contacts with other festivals and concert organisations
  • Familiarisation with the funding bodies and sponsors involved in the arts
  • Establishing contacts with journalists and critics
  • The opportunity to develop projects on an autonomous basis in line with the Festival’s vision

 

We strongly encourage past interns to remain involved with the Festival and are delighted that previous participants in this scheme have returned as volunteers or staff at Festivals long after their internship ended. Many have also gone on to careers in the worlds of music publishing, performance and academia.

LATEST NEWS

A very warm “thank you” to all who made the 2021 Autumn Festival such a success: to St Mary’s Church and the Drill Hall in Horsham for welcoming us again; to the artists, for their stimulating and engaging performances; to all the volunteers, without whose help running the Festival “on the ground” would simply not be possible; and, of course, to our audiences, whose enthusiasm and support continue to mean so much to us.

Booking has now opened for our Christmas Concerts. This year these will be held in the historically fascinating church of St Andrew’s in the delightful Northumbrian town of Corbridge with its rich Roman remains and plethora of charming restaurants, tea-shops, pubs, hotels and artisan shops. The full programme is posted on this page; and tickets may be booked through our online Box Office.

With the artists’ permission, some of the events at the 2021 May Festival were filmed; and these are now ready for viewing on this website. We are making a modest charge for access — this is to cover the costs of production and also to enable us to pay a royalty to the performers. The film programmes are available on this page; and tickets can be purchased from our online Box Office.
