Showtime for School's New Theatre Equipment

Arts and Drama students at Ellesmere College can now get their hands on the latest digital equipment thanks to a donation from the Ellesmerian Club. The Club gave a gift to the College which has been put towards a new digital sound desk and theatre lighting in the Arts Centre.

Rob Harm, Arts Centre Manager said "This high spec, quality equipment is used throughout most professional venues, so we are adding to an already exciting and well equipped theatre for students to perform in. The equipment will not only be used in performances and plays but it will form part of our students theatre production training".

This investment comes at a time when the School has recently been recognised as a 'Hub School of Creativity' by Arts Connect, West Midlands, which means that Ellesmere College will play a part in influencing the Arts and cultural provision which in turn directly supports children and young people in the local area.

Richard Morris, Chairman of the Ellesmerian Club, said "It's always a pleasure to give something back to the School which has provided so much for its students both past and present. Our contribution to The Arts at Ellesmere is symbolic of the partnership formed between the Alumni and the School and this new addition to the facilities will ensure that students will receive the very best in theatre training".
