25th October is THEATRECRAFT! Participate in-person or online

If you are aged 16-30 (or know others who are), and have an interest in the theatre as a potential future career, then you simply cannot afford to miss the invaluable, totally FREE, once-a-year event that is TheatreCraft 2022.

This year, on Tuesday 25th October, the doors of the Royal Opera House will open to the main event, with a wide range of events featuring top industry names, all ready to share their thoughts and insight with you. And with dozens of bookable workshops happening both online and at three nearby theatres, there is a huge range of things to do, see and participate in.

Responding to the shift to hybrid events, this year you can watch several key panel discussions LiveStreamed online on the Official London Theatre YouTube channel, which you can find here , including from 11.00am to 12 noon MAKING THEATRE AFFORDABLE, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm MAKING THEATRE SUSTAINABLE, from 2.30pm to 3.30pm MAKING THEATRE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES, and from 4.00pm to 5.00pm FREELANCERS MAKE THEATRE HAPPEN. Watch te live throughout the day on the YouTube link above!

TheatreCraft is the only major event focused on offstage careers, in other words anything but acting. Lighting, Directing, Choreography, Writing, Sound, Music, Costume, Props, Stage Combat, Stage Management, Venue Management and more are all represented. Workshops allow a rare opportunity to hear firsthand from experts about what they do and how they do it. In most events there is also time for questions from the audience, so you can get more involved.

Having been a small part of the management of this event for three years, I can tell you firsthand that there is no better place to go to boost your knowledge and meet thousands of like-minded people. It’s a great day which you should not miss!

The day itself is run by a fantastic team of fun, hard-working volunteers and the industry participants all give their time free to be involved. 

TheatreCraft is organised by a group of committed partners from across the creative and cultural industries: the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, the Royal Opera House, the Society of London Theatre and Mousetrap Theatre Projects.
