Course summary

The methodical planning; the long hours; the people managing; the last-minute changes and challenges; followed by the relief and excitement as thousands of event goers go home satisfied. Event management can be a rollercoaster ride, and not for the fainthearted. We know, because at Confetti we do it day-in, day-out. If you think you’ve got what it takes, study with us and you’ll get countless opportunities to work on real-life events through our industry connections and our very own commercial-facing live music and events venues, working with in-house expert teams and external partners. You’ll work on a breadth of events; from music and comedy, theatre productions, to outdoor festivals, esports tournaments, community and corporate events. We work with the likes of Rough Trade, BBC, Just the Tonic, and artists and organisations from across the UK and wider. Complementing all that real-life experience are regular insights from industry leaders during Confetti Industry Week and through guest lectures. You’ll learn and work alongside performers, engineers, producers, designers and events specialists in a creative and collaborative eco-system.
