We were delighted to welcome a group of Students from the University of Bristol’s Student Technical Association, down to Enlightened HQ to give them some hands-on experience demoing some of our Hire Equipment.

After a whistle-stop tour of the warehouse, we set up demos of our Martin Wavefront Line Array and Yamaha QL5 digital sound desk along with a multi-track to give them some experience of mixing on a new console.  We also set up an array of both moving and static lights and a selection of desks to allow them to try out and a variety of different brands of lighting control solutions.

We really enjoy these informal events and have long had a brilliant relationship with the University of Bristol’s STA and it’s incredibly rewarding to be in a position to give students the opportunity to try out new equipment they may want to incorporate into their own upcoming shows and projects and fantastic performance spaces.

Enlightened’s hire manager David Johnson is always passionate in his support of industry students saying, "This was a fantastic event, it was great to see so many enthusiastic students from the STA come to see us, taking time out from their busy study and work schedule to learn more about the live event industry and more about products that we use on shows every day.  Our relationship with the next generation of upcoming event professionals is very important, and we as an industry should be doing everything we can to encourage them in their efforts to develop and learn more about what we do”
