Burnley Festival of

Speech, Music & Stage Dance







Lots of people help us with the Festival by giving their time and expertise to help something happen that they believe in. Could you be one of them?  We need help through the year developing the Festival to meet the needs of today’s performers and of course we need hands-on help on the days of the Festival itself.

We currently have a vacancy for someone to help us with publicity for our Festival, but whatever your area of expertise and interest from drama, music anddance to secretarial, management, fund-raising and IT skills, you can be sure we would welcome your involvement to the extent you wished to give it.

Vaguely interested?  Please come along to one of our Festival events and make yourself known at the Festival Office. Alternatively  email us and we will  be in touch.

The Burnley Festival Team look forward to hearing from you!
