​International Fairs and Auditions (alphabetically by country)

Each year we attend recruitment events and hold overseas auditions/interviews in several countries. Due to COVID-19 some of our upcoming activities will take place virtually rather than in person. For events not organised by us we recommend you check with the organiser prior to confirming your attendance.

International candidates are welcome to audition/interview in Liverpool, or if you are unable to, we are happy to accept "postal auditions" in the form of a video or electronic portfolio submission. Should you chose this option, tailored audition guidelines will be shared with you prior to your submission.

Please note that for most auditions and interviews, we expect candidates to have prepared for auditions and interviews in advance using guidelines we provide.

All LIPA interviews and auditions start and end on the same day.

Unless otherwise stated, please contact international@lipa.ac.uk for more information about any of these events.
