Stage Managers from the UK, Germany, Austria and Switzerland gathered at Rose Bruford College, from the 16 July to 21 July, for a week-long symposium examining European and British stage management practices. The week provided an opportunity to share and learn new skills and increase understanding of the craft of stage managing.

With a number of sessions delivered by UK based professionals and Rose Bruford College faculty the symposium explored a range of themes, from the language of stage management to touring productions internationally.

The week also featured round table discussions and debates, exclusive backstage visits and tours of iconic London shows and venues, as well as tickets to a production.
