Lots of shows on the West End will do a work placement for a week (or two sometimes). All it involves is filling out a form and giving it a wait. I'd suggest doing it now as lots of people like to do them.

Or there's the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But you might want to contact them soon because they get filled very quickly.

I was also going to mention that there are a lot of smaller West-End shows that need crews.  Similar in environment with off-off-off Broadway, you work for free or for very little pay, but its a good way to get experience and make contacts.

^Very true. The London Fringe circuit is a good one to get in with as well.

I'd suggest uk.stagejobspro.com. You have to sign up but it's free (at least it was when I did it) and there's lots of Stage Manager on Book jobs that get put up there. You might find yourself op-ing LX and Sound as well as being Stage Manager/DSM but it's a good way to meet people.
