Who we are

The Production Managers’ Forum (PMF) is a resource for anyone involved in the production or technical management of theatre or live events.

It enables members to share ideas, information and knowledge, and to connect with each other through the PMF website, social media channels,  newsletters, regular forums, Town Halls and social events.

How we Run

The PMF is a not for profit Community Interest Company (CIC) run for the members, by the members. The organising committee is made up of experienced Theatre and Events professionals, who give their time for free. You can see our details here. We communicate all the time using an online hub and have monthly virtual meetings. We are always happy to talk to members who would like to join the committee. Current committee vacancies can be found here but if you you have a particular skill or area of interest you think might interest us, we would be very happy to hear from you.

what we offer

Our members and supporters are sent regular Newsletters and mailings, featuring news and articles from and about the Production and Technical Management world.

We hold regular Forums, at venues throughout the UK, on subjects relevant to and suggested by our membership. Since the pandemic these have been hybrid Forums, allowing members to attend in person or online via Zoom.

They are always followed by Socials which all Theatre and Event professionals are welcome to join.

All Forums are recorded and you can see the videos here, where they are also available as an industry resource.

During the pandemic we started holding regular online Town Halls. These continue on a regular basis and are an opportunity for an exchange of views and a catch up about current issues. Again these are recorded and can be found here.s

Our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn pages feature our activities and news as well as postings from other users and organisations.

We run a mentoring scheme to support aspiring and early career Production Managers.

Via the website our members can view and post Job Opportunities. They can also access information on everything from legislation to training.

Finally we have a closed Facebook page, where members can ask questions and share experiences and knowledge.
