Attention all educators: join us at this year's JTF for FREE on our Professional Development Track

This year's Junior Theatre Festival Europe takes place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May at The ICC in Birmingham. 62 groups and over 2000 people will attend the two day-long celebrations of musical theatre.

We're thrilled to announce availability of a limited number of FREE places on our Professional Development (PD) Track. You will immerse yourself in workshops, adjudications, and discussions while having fun with fellow teachers and directors. It's also a great way to meet the MTI team and interact with the people who adapt the Broadway Junior shows. If you are interested in bringing a group to the Festival in the future, then the PD track is a great way to experience it first without students. We promise to leave you inspired and energised with new strategies and resources.  A complimentary lunch will be provided.

How to Apply

You can apply to attend on either Saturday 18th May OR Sunday 19th May. Each organisation is entitled to apply for two tickets. Both tickets must be used by teachers at the organisation.

As we only have a small number of places, and to ensure that places for this free opportunity are not wasted, we’re asking for a refundable payment of £20 per person, so £40 in total, to secure your places. We’ll refund the payment to you after you’ve attended the Festival. Failure to attend will result in MTI keeping the payment.

In order to apply, please make a £40 payment by debit/credit card as quickly as possible. You should make the payment here: (please use JTFPD as the invoice number/reference).

Once we've received your deposit payment we'll be in touch to confirm whether you've been successful.
