Work experience

Glyndebourne runs a comprehensive programme of work experience placements, and applicants from all backgrounds and with varying levels of practical experience will be considered. We are happy to meet any access needs that we reasonably can; for some, we may need to do this in partnership with others (school/college etc.).

Unfortunately, we cannot place applicants who are under 16, and only those with relevant and thorough technical experience will be placed in our production or making departments. There is an enormous demand for places and not all applications will be successful. 

Apply now for 2015
We are now accepting applications for eight week-long placements at Glyndebourne in 2015. These are for local young people aged 16+ who are still at school or college. Please fill in the application form below and return by the 31st January 2015 to Kate Simner, Education Assistant, at

If you have any questions please contact Kate Simner at
Glyndebourne's Stage Management, Costume and Props departments are not currently accepting any new applications for work experience placements.

"Overall, I had a fantastic week. I experienced a range of departments and thoroughly enjoyed everything."
