We are hiring – Freelance Festival Producer

Buckinghamshire Culture and Buckinghamshire Council are seeking a freelance Festival Producer to work with us, our stakeholders and partners, to scope and develop a framework for a Festival of Stories.  Inspired by the literary heritage of the county, and nourished through the belief that everyone, and every landscape, has a story to tell, we want to explore and share stories of Buckinghamshire and its people through a multi-disciplinary creative and cultural festival.  We also want to create a programme of developmental and exploratory activity, leading to a high-quality future Festival that is unique to Bucks.

For this piece of work, we are looking to appoint a freelance Producer who will scope the festival including a focused vision, aims, objectives and outcomes; create a Business Plan and Delivery Plan presenting key programmes, milestones and deliverables, and including recommendations for the festival delivery model; a budget for development and delivery of both pre-festival development and the first full festival; and a fundraising strategy in order to achieve this.

We envisage this work taking place in Spring 2023, over 3-6 months.

Fixed fee of £10,000, fully inclusive of taxes and expenses
