As part of their first year of study all our technical theatre students are introduced to as much of the London theatre world as possible with various trips to shows throughout the year and tours of the technical aspects of the venues. Last week the Theatre Technology pathway first years were given a very informative guided tour of the National Theatre on the South Bank. The tour covered all four venues at the site with informative technical commentary from Mike Walker and Tim Middleton (Technical Managers at the National Theatre…both of whom are Guildhall Alumni!). The students got to see all the various sound, video and lighting aspects with insight into the extensive technical infrastructure that links the site together. Huge Thank You to Mike and Tim for their time, patience and willingness to pass on their extensive knowledge!
