We want to help you to channel and nurture your talent and energy to help make wonderful creative things happen in Mossley by becoming part of a new Mossley Events Team to provide vital support for the festival and beyond. Will you help us and be part of the team? To develop the team we’ve designed a unique and fascinating programme, inviting the best professionals in the field to share their knowledge and inspiration with you. The Mossley Events Team will be a dynamic group who have all the skills to design and deliver events, create stronger community ties, and be a crucial part of achieving the ambition of local events. This is a brilliant opportunity for anyone interested in event planning and management; learn from the best out there and apply it right here.

About our events training:

We have designed a series of training days tailored to the needs of local events. The training days will consist of five stand alone sessions that give an overview of different types of site specific outdoor events ranging from health and safety training to hearing from inspiring international events producers from around the globe.

You can choose to attend as few or as many of the days as you wish, but we encourage you to attend every session for a more rounded view of the many elements of events management and to hear from as many inspiring people as possible.

All the training will lead to a final tailored day that will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage and crew this year’s Mossley Light Festival. Anyone wanting to take a leading role on the day of the event will need to attend the compulsory ‘Mossley Light Festival Crew Day‘ unless otherwise arranged. Bespoke training such as this would usually involve a lot of financial investment for anyone wanting to learn (and could be a potential barrier for getting experience or even future employment), but we are excited to offer this opportunity to our town of Mossley in exchange for your time and energy to really give ownership of the skills and personalities that can be honed to create something special.
