BA (Hons)Arts and Event Management

Course Overview

Events don’t just happen. Festivals, theatre productions, exhibitions, music gigs and multi-media events need creative, energetic and well organised people to make them a reality.

(soon to be retitled Creative Events Management)

In this course you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to put on successful creative events.

You will be surrounded by a wealth of creative talent and the opportunity of working with creative practitioners and external clients.

You will also learn how the wider creative world operates and develop skills in digital technology and business planning.

Our graduates have used their skills in organisation, management and marketing to work in festival production companies, for top digital businesses like Spotify, for internationally renowned orchestras and world class museums.

Through theory, technique and practice, we’ll help you develop as a successful arts manager, with plenty to offer the arts and creative industries. You’ll also develop an entrepreneurial attitude that could help you start your own business.

Work together to create something special

Creative events are the product of team work involving people from a wide range of backgrounds working closely together. On your course, you’ll work with other students to devise and deliver an arts event each year. You’ll discover your own specialist interests and have the satisfaction of seeing the events you organise go ‘live’.

From The BBC Promenade Concerts to Glastonbury, from the Olympics to the Queen’s Jubilee, the UK knows how to put on a show. Whether you find yourself working for a major Fashion Week or a local music festival, this course will equip you with the skills to be a real asset to your team.
