Our events are a chance for you to see what goes on behind the scenes. You’ll get to mix with some industry professionals, get their advice and an idea about we do.

Keep an eye on this page and our social networks to be the first to find out about upcoming 4Skills events.

New Material is an exciting new events series coming to a city near you. 

Do you have an interest in media and storytelling, but are not sure what opportunities are available to you? Well, Channel 4 has partnered with Livity to deliver an event series that will not only kick start your career in media but give you all the information you need to find what’s available to you in your area. We’re headed to Birmingham, Nottingham, Leeds, Glasgow and Derry and Bristol between September - November 2019. 

More than just a careers fair; New Material is an opportunity to learn about what the media industry is and what it actually involves. A place where you can develop the right skills needed to kickstart your career, figure out which job roles suit you and hear it first from the young people already smashing it in the industry. 

With a mix of panel discussions (featuring local young people and the Channel 4 stars  behind the camera), interactive workshops, networking sessions and live performances, you’ll definitely leave with more than just flyers and a few free pens. 

You’ll also be introduced to Channel 4’s apprenticeships, work experience, training and talent schemes, aimed at young people with little to no experience through to those with graduate degrees.

These events are for 16-25 year olds, registration is FREE, and you don't need to have a background in media to attend, you just need to have a passion for it! 

These events are curated and developed my Livity’s very own youth team. 



Our events at Channel 4

We host a programme of events throughout the year. These are aimed at people who are eager to know more about the industry and how to build a career within it. These might be held in conjunction with one of our partners, or have a focus on a particular show or director. Whatever the format and focus, each will offer an insight into the world of Channel 4.
