Backstage Academy is a unique university centre and training facility created solely for the live events industry, providing relevant, up-to-date training for the next generation.

Backstage Academy’s degrees, and short courses are very hands on, giving students a real taste of what life is like in the live events industry. This is why Production Park is the ideal location for the Backstage Academy campus, as the students are able to study alongside all five LS Live studios and are surrounded by a variety of established live events businesses with a diverse range of productions and projects right on their doorstep.

Backstage Academy students achieve brilliant employment levels and have gone on to gain employment on the Jay Z world tour, the Winter Olympics, the Mumford & Sons tour, the Glastonbury site office, Leeds Festival, Alton Towers, Well Pleased Events and Genesis Theatre.
