Well Wednesday 26th was my first road trip with Bangor University Stage Crew as we headed to Leeds for a training session on some brand new lighting desks. Along the way and coming back we had a laugh playing some questionable games, Tindering and laughing at Matt’s expense, especially when we left the services and he lost his Costa!
In teams of two we were trained on Avolites desks (costing about £8000 each) creating our own beautiful lighting shows which would send people into epileptic fits, these were displayed on virtual stages which looked amazing. The place we were trained in had colour changing lights lining the walls everywhere, their equipment was to be envious of which should be expected from a distributor of lighting, accessories and consumables. It may not seem much to some but being out and about doing something I enjoy with some amazing friends was, well, amazing.
