We’re always looking to expand our team of casual volunteers who assist with everything from flyering and stewarding, to helping out in the office and even sometimes appearing as extras in our shows! If you’re interested in giving us some of your time to help make Mayfest happen, email matthewandkate@mayk.org.uk with your name, contact details and how you think you can help us out.

Work Experience

As we are such a small team, we are unfortunately not able to respond to requests for work experience. We occasionally advertise internships and placements through specific schemes. Any future placements will be advertised on this page.

MA Creative Producing 

Immersive theatre, choreographed construction cranes, and streetlights that interact with passersby. A new kind of creative experience has emerged from Bristol's PMStudio fusing performance, sculpture and installation with technology. Innovative projects like these require a new kind of creative producer. Watershed and UWE have designed a new Creative Producing MA which is 50/50 practical and analytical. They've teamed up with producers across Bristol who will host MA students during the course, and we're one of these collaborators.

There are ten places in total and two of them are 50% subsidised placements for BAME students (supported by Stephen Lawrence Trust).
