Performance and entertainment technology plays a key role in the live arts, from traditional theatre to music festivals, corporate events and cruise ships. On our programme you learn the ropes of the back-stage industry in the theatre. Once you have mastered all aspects of technical theatre, including lighting, live sound, stage management, prop buying and making, construction and AV, you can apply these skills to wider areas of media, arts and event production. Our varied range of performances (including music gigs, dance and theatre productions) provides ample opportunities to put your learning into practice. So, through a largely theatre-based training you develop a broad range of practical knowledge that equips you with transferable skills enabling you to thrive across the entire performing arts sector.

The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts opened in 1996 to forge a new approach to performing arts training. It was co-founded by our lead patrons Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty and is housed in his old school, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts institution you'll see today.
