If you have an interest in the technical side of presenting concerts, theatre performances and events this two- part course is a great way to learn about stage lighting, starting with basic lighting theory, introducing the equipment, and understanding the technical terms and lighting design principles.

Working in The Stables with a variety of lighting stage equipment, you will get practical experience in a professional environment and see how the lighting elements come together in putting on an event or show. Although you cannot learn an entire subject like stage lighting in a short course, it’s still a great way for beginners to make a start.

This very practical course will offer will offer hands on learning including areas such as rigging, focussing and operating, and is led by people with real practical experience in lighting design and operating.
