This could be anything from reviewing gigs to making podcasts about family activities.

There are already some exciting tasks lined up, including live broadcasts on the day of the festival, speaking to audiences and interviewing artists.

The corespondents’ first task will be to produce footage to promote the festival, when First Art bring brass band, Back Chat Brass to Mansfield on Friday, August 30.

Karl Greenwood, First Art director said: “This is a unique way to shout about some of the great things going on in Mansfield through the eyes and ears of local people themselves.”

Caleb, a cultural correspondent says ‘I got involved as I wanted to get an insight into how projects are run.

"I’m interested in developing a career in the arts and media and this gives me a great opportunity to get some good experience under my belt and understand how a festival like The Full Shebang works’
