About the Event

Join us over June and July for an Actors’ Group focus. This special event series will focus on the craft of acting with talks, workshops and speed networking to help expand your practice and hone your skills.

From the business of acting and tips to help you prepare for auditions, to the opportunity to network with producers and directors, there’s something for actors at all career stages.

For the first event in the series, Abigail Longstaffe from The Mandy Network will be sharing an overview of the business of acting, insight into key industry changes over the past year, and what these mean for actors.

Abigail will be offering advice on headshots, showreels, voice reels, how to nail a self-tape audition, whilst sharing top tips for contacting casting directors and agents. For those early into their acting career or if you’re seeking tips to progress to the next level, this is a great introductory session from an expert on the changing trends of the industry.

After the talk there will be an opportunity for an audience Q&A.

Abigail Longstaffe heads up the Mandy Network's Business Development teams in the UK, US and Canada. She originally trained at Mountview Academy and has worked as an actor in shows around the World and on the West End. She then moved out of acting, founding and running a theatrical agency before moving to The Mandy Network. She regularly gives talks to actors on the business of acting and how to promote themselves.
