Student Ambassadors

We are always looking to develop our links to the student community. Currently we are looking to grow our pool of Student Ambassadors. If you would be interested in representing your University and promoting the Festival Theatre please get in touch with Cat Sheridan - Email: catrin.sheridan@capitaltheatres.com

You will have the chance to see some world class shows for free at our venues, meet the teams behind the scenes and participate in a range of workshops. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
