New building, new students, new academic year…

Well here we are again, back after the summer break…shaking off the dust and sweeping away the cobwebs ready for another academic year and a busy term ahead.

The technical theatre department are all settled into the new digs over the road from our Silk Street building at our shiny new Milton Court building.  Well for those of you who have been lucky enough to have a look around i’m sure you will agree that the new building is stunning! Shiny new, packed full of amazing equipment and as of Monday next week, full of eager and excited students populating the space.  There are a lot of exciting shows and events happening this term so I will keep you posted and as usual I will be recording the construction and painting of all of the scenery for the upcoming productions and the making of the props for the shows.

I’m very much looking forward to welcoming back our returning students on Monday and opening the workshop doors to the new cohort of Design Realisation students and of course all of the students that make up the technical theatre department.  Lots of new faces to learn but as usual I can’t wait to meet everyone.

Just one more thing to say…

The design realisation blog is now 1 year old and in that time we have published 82 posts, hundreds of photos (i’m not counting them all!) and we have had over 20,300 views in 94 countries! Thanks for the support, keep reading, keep sharing and let’s make it 50,000 views by this time next year!

Challenge accepted…
