Not content with bringing some of the country’s top music stars to Blackpool and the Fylde coast, a concert promoter is now looking for young talent to get involved in some major shows.
Cuffe and Taylor, who cut their teeth on developing Lytham Proms into a major regional event, now run a series of concerts and festivals across the country.
Company directors Daniel Cuffe and Peter Taylor are now recruiting interns to work on their summer shows as part of a pledge to nurture new talent in the entertainment industry.
Daniel said: “We search for interns each year to work at our events because it is such a fantastic opportunity for them to gain first-hand experience in the events industry.
“Everyone involved gets the chance to work alongside our dedicated team at key festivals and events around the UK including London’s Greenwich Music Time, Stoke’s Betley Concerts, the Lytham Festival, Lancashire’s Symphony at the Tower and one-off concerts such as Neil Diamond in Blackpool.
“Our business is about working with some of the most amazing musical talent we see around the world but it is also great to be able to work alongside talented young people who want to work in that industry too.”

The paid intern positions run from now until August, with a minimum of three days’ work a week.
Applicants must be over 18 and studying a relevant event management, marketing, design, media or music entertainment course.
Daniel added: “We are looking for extremely hard-working, enthusiastic and self-motivated people.
“It is hard work and there is an absolute necessity to be able to keep calm and professional at all times as this is a very hectic business and above all, enjoy music.
“In return, I can promise that everyone who is successful will have a fantastic time this summer with great experience to show on their CV and who knows, there may be future Cuffe and Taylor event managers in the making.”
