Young Producers, Royal Albert Hall

Deadline: Friday 5 November, 12pm

How Long: December 2021 to April 2022

Compensation: Voluntary role

Are you interested in a career in the music industry? If so, the Royal Albert Hall’s Young Producers scheme may be for you.

They’re looking for a new group of passionate 18–25-year-olds to take part in the 2021/2022 programme. Those successful will get the exclusive opportunity to organise and curate an evening of events at the Hall, in some of the spaces beyond the main stage.

As a Young Producer, you’ll be given a budget, support and guidance to help bring your event ideas to life. Through a series of regular workshops with Hall staff, you will gain invaluable experience in putting on events; from programming and marketing to event management.

You will mainly be programming events for the Hall’s Elgar Room, a world-class and incredibly flexible performance space. The Elgar Room has welcomed artists such as Ezra Collective, Lowkey, Kae Tempest, and Laura Mvula, hosting a wide range of events including film screenings, live music, children’s DJ dance parties and much more.

This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your creativity and learn from experts in a world-famous performance venue. What are you waiting for?
