Theatre lovers! We’ve got a cracking brief for you.

As our partner HighTide gears up for their sixth annual theatre festival, we’re looking for one IdeasTap member to report back from festival for IdeasMag. This is your chance to check out exciting new theatre and have a 500-word review published in a magazine. You’ll attend on the weekend of 5 to 6 of May, during which the programme is as follows:



• HighMind Talk (12pm)

• Rifle Hall Plays The Hour of Feeling by Mona Mansour (9-10.15pm)


HighTide Festival runs from 3 to 13 May 2012, in Halesworth, Suffolk.

To apply, upload your CV, supply a 100-word summary, outlining why you’d like to cover HighTide, and make sure you have at least two writing samples in your IdeasTap portfolio. 


This brief closes at 5pm on Friday 20 April and is open to IdeasTap members aged 18 to 30. If you have any technical queries, email Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute.


How to apply


  • Your words of Wisdom are Sweet, Sick, Sleek and Stylish,
    You have written quite the dialect Dish,
    Served up cold and wriggling like a dead Fish,
    Oh how I look out to Sea and wonder about the big wide World and me,
    Will, How and Do I make a difference?
    Or am I just another lost Homosapien looking for a Mate,
    Hoping my life will be easy served up on a Gold plate….
