Hailsham Festival


Fee: £3500 depending on experience.

Hailsham Festival wishes to commission a writer/lyricist to create the script and lyrics for 'String' a large-scale community music-theatre work rooted in the town of Hailsham and its surrounding area. The project will be launched in September 2019 and be performed in September 2020 as a central component of the annual festival. It will involve up to 200 participants and draw on the rich range of community groups which already exist locally and who perform/exhibit regularly.

The script will be devised and written between September 2019 and the end of January 2020. The lyrics will be completed by the end of December 2019. From March – September 2020 the writer/lyricist will visit workshops and rehearsals from time to time for discussion and make amendment as necessary.
