UK Theatre | Off Stage conference

UK Theatre's Off Stage conference will explore venue related building issues, environmental & sustainability improvements, health & safety initiatives and hands-on technical & production management.

Bringing together professionals across operations, front of house, technical, general management, customer service and administration either or both days will be an opportunity to network, explore practical solutions and discuss latest developments in the sector. It will focus on issues affecting the industry today and also predicting future risks and our responses.
