Creative Careers Week - Theatre Visit
20th November 2019
On Wednesday, 20th November, 25 Year 8 pupils had the unique opportunity to visit PRG UK to look at potential careers in the events and entertainment industry, as part of Creative Careers Week.
PRG is a multi-award-winning supplier of lighting, video and rigging systems to the events and entertainment industry in the UK. Their clients include music touring companies, event producers, theatre designers, television production designers, and the producers of special events. The range of services offered by PRG covers everything from support at the conception, planning, and implementation stages, to technical equipment and follow-up for all kinds of events. PRG's extensive inventory of event technology is the largest in the world.
During the visit, PRG talked to pupils about the wide range of options for future careers within the entertainment industry which are not solely limited to drama and performance. They gave a tour of their facility and offered some practical activities, where pupils were able to experiment with the lighting systems and technology used within large events. Our pupils were full of enthusiasm and PRG stated that they were a credit to our school. We look forward to seeing some of them in the future, working on major TV programmes or music festivals as a result of this inspirational opportunity.
