Plymouth University College Marjon recently held their annual Fresher’s Fortnight Event, which required the installation of a temporary live stage in the college’s main hall, and Clockwork Audio Systems were on hand for the 5th year running to provide staging, lighting and audio for various acts over the course of the fortnight.
The hall where the entertainment takes place has been recently refurbished, and is primarily used as the main refreshment and catering area for the college, so the requirement was to transform the look of the hall into a more “club” like venue for each evening’s entertainment. With the use of our truss system, various blacks and backdrops and lighting, we were able to get the look the customer was after.
Utilising our KV2 Audio ES system along with an Allen and Heath iLive mixer for the main live event, the Black Eye’d Teaz (no prizes for guessing who this tribute act worship…) looked and sounded great.
Many other events also took place on the temporary stage, making use of a variety of CAS hire stock, including a complete DJ set-up, club lighting and effects. The nights ranged from live bands to DJ’s, Illusionists, Comedians and Hypnotists across the fortnight for which the stage was “reset” as required.
The Fresher’s events culminated in the Fresher’s Ball which featured in –house DJ’s, the popular local covers band: Ruffkutz and a DJ set from The Utah Saints.
The fortnight was a great success, with very positive feedback from the organisers and all who attended.
