Sound, lighting and stage management
Join our Production and Technical Team if you are interested in:
- learning how sound and lighting systems work for gigs, events and shows
- building stages and sets
- finding out what happens backstage
- developing sound engineering skills.
Every Wednesday afternoon, come along to our Centre for Music workshop where you can get involved in building sets and using lighting rigs.
The Production and Technical Team provide support to Centre for Music events throughout the year.
In 2019 the team designed and built the Centre for Music Jazz venue from scratch.
There will be opportunities to get backstage at events in some of Bristol’s most iconic venues such as the Colston Hall, the Old Vic and Hippodrome. It’s a great way to learn new skills and get involved with the entertainment industry.
Workshops happen every Wednesday between 10:30-16:30 in the Centre for Music workshop behind W Block. View a map of Frenchay Campus.
If being a sound engineer for live music events is more your thing, there are opportunities to train alongside experienced sound engineers and learn the ropes at live events from venues on campus and in the city.
Email: Geoff.Widdowson@uwe.ac.uk to get involved.
