Together with Cwmaman Institute ProMo-Cymru organised a sound and lighting course.

Young people were introduced to the basics of Live Sound as well as lighting Engineering, both in theory and practice. They learned everything about pre-production and production stages like how to use the light to create different atmospheres, but also communicating with the director and producer to establish sound and lighting requirements, their use of scenery and props, working through the script, planning the sound and lighting as well as backstage activity, etc. It was lots of fun for everyone and a good experience in general!

This volunteer training programme comprised of 8 weekly training sessions. The training was given by Vic Frederick and his assistant, sound engineer Simon Martin and a professional Stage Manager Alys Jenkins.
