Stage Manager's are generally a chatty bunch but don't often get the chance to get together without shows. productions etc. being the focus of our attention. Well we're organising an event that is just for us, and just about us. We're hoping it's a chance to talk, identify training gaps, current challenges we face in today's industry etc. Anything specific you may want to include then let us know, and we can hopefully make it what you'd like it to be.

This event is for professional Stage Managers.
Attendance is free, but tickets are booked through Eventbrite.
