The Old Fire Station

Production Manager & Technician

Part time work alongside my studies at Bournemouth University, at SUBU's Student Union owned Nightclub and Live Music Venue "The Old Fire Station". Work includes setting up for gigs and club nights and ensuring the smooth running of the nights themselves. It involves liaising with external promoters, DJs, tour managers, equipment suppliers, security personnel and technicians, managing and working as part of a setup crew to rig lights, visuals, sound equipment and staging as well as helping to maintain a safe, operational and high standard venue. Involves working long hours as part of the job, a large portion of the time working overnight.
Includes work at the annual 'Summerball', for which I acted as stage manager and assisted with the setup and set down of the festival site.
Also includes some experience acting as Bar Staff.
