Arts and Festivals Management at DMU is one of the longest running degree courses of its kind in the UK and is rising in the ranks (7th out of 48) according to the Guardian University Guide 2016. You will gain practical, theoretical and professional skills required to successfully manage events on any scale and complexity, and be ready to work within the ever expanding arts and festivals sector. You will organise and deliver our Cultural eXchanges Festival which is a diverse week of interactive discussions, performances and talks at DMU. The festival and its programme of events represent the creativity of the current Arts and Festivals Management students. Previous festival highlights include: Zandra Rhodes CBE (iconic fashion designer), Lord Melvyn Bragg (acclaimed broadcaster and writer) and Matthew Bourne (internationally acclaimed choreographer). You will also be able to organise and manage your own venue at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival.
