Exeter Works doors will be closing on 31 March, but you will still be able to get support and guidance on our website. The Youth Hub will open the doors to its new home in Exeter Library from 3 April.

A programme of workshops and placements, designed to introduce participants to the range of technical skills/roles involved in putting on a theatre production or other live event, and provide signposting for future training and career development. Delivered by tutors and members of the Northcott Theatre’s Technical team, workshops will be a mixture of digital and face to face sessions in the theatre.

Who is it for?

The programme is open to anyone who is unemployed or economically inactive who has a ‘beginner’s interest’ in working behind the scenes in backstage or technical departments including stage, scenic flying, lighting, sound and stage management.

We are particularly interested in hearing from women, people who have a disability and people from diverse backgrounds
