On Sat 17 & Sat 24 Feb the Mercury will be holding two drop-in sessions, from 10am-1pm, for those who would like to learn more about a Hervey Benham Apprenticeship.

This apprenticeship in the Mercury Theatre’s technical department will provide experience working backstage as part of this busy team who are responsible for all technical elements of our performances including all sound, lighting, and staging.

You will have the opportunity to operate the lighting on productions, and learn follow-spotting techniques. If you have no prior knowledge of lighting practice and basic rigging skills, don’t worry, but a practical and sensible attitude and the ability to pick up tasks quickly will aid you in making the most out of this apprenticeship.

For more details, including how to apply, please visit our Employment Opportunities page.
