  • Devising and delivering the marketing and social media strategy for the season.
  • Assisting the production and distribution of print materials.
  • Assisting with the development of the website.
  • Managing the festival’s social media accounts. Creating content to increase online engagement.
  • Providing updates and key information for audiences online in the run up and during the season.
