Highlighting local careers in STEM

Festomane logo

Festomane, Stroud's annual festival of manufacturing and engineering celebrates the area's rich heritage and great strength in manufacturing and engineering.  Renishaw is one of the charity's proud local sponsors and co-founders.

Festomane raises awareness of the many local career opportunities in manufacturing and engineering, and the advantages of following STEM subjects at school.

With manufacturing and engineering employing more quarter of the Stroud district's population, the local economy is heavily dependent on its success and prosperity. Alas, local employers can struggle to recruit the necessary skilled staff.

As its key aim, Festomane was founded therefore to highlight the wealth of rewarding career opportunities there are in engineering and manufacturing locally, and to inspire young people to develop their interest in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects at school.
