CHATTERIS: Free skills course

Share this article

Next week young people will have the chance to start a free training course based at Chatteris Library to learn the skills needed to select, promote and stage a public event. The course is being delivered by ADeC (Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire) and will look at marketing, health and safety, sound and lighting, box office, budgets, and the roles and responsibilities of all those involved in an event .

The training, which is funded by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Libraries Development Initiative, will culminate in a public show selected by the students. This could be a music concert, theatre performance, story telling event or film showing – the young people will decide.

The course will run for seven sessions (one of these being the event itself and one an evaluation session).

Nathan Jones, the course leader at ADeC said: “This is always a great course to deliver and the young people always enjoy it. In the past young people have chosen to stage everything from plays to rock concerts. I’m looking forward to seeing what the young people of Chatteris decide on.”

The first session will take place at Chatteris Library on Friday 16th November from 4pm – 5pm. To book a place sign up at Chatteris library or for more information contact
