The Mercury Theatre Colchester in partnership with South East Creatives invite you to be part of our exclusive programme, Mercury Creative Entrepreneurs, a free project with limited spaces to support new creative businesses.

This exciting programme will offer support to new creative businesses and freelancers, such as practitioners, new writers, directors, creatives, set designers, scenic artists, costume makers and technicians, to name but a few. The only condition is that these businesses must be newly registered with HMRC or Companies House for less than a year at the time of applying.

Want to find out more? Join us for our FREE launch event, which will take place on Wednesday 16th October, 6.30pm at the Abbey Field Centre, Colchester, CO2 7UW.

Come and meet the Mercury Theatre’s Senior Management Team and find out how Mercury Creative Entrepreneurs can help you understand the essentials of running a creative business; how to manage your finances; effective fundraising; and how to engage with your clients and audiences through digital marketing.

If you think we can help, after the event you can apply to take part in the next stage of this exciting free programme!

Small print  If spaces remain it may be possible to turn up without booking, however we recommend booking to guarantee entry.
