Industry insight

Over 60 Gateacre School students took part in an industry day held by local company and Educate Awards 2014 sponsor Adlib. Adlib who regularly tour with the likes of The Script, Bob Dylan and Ellie Goulding, presented a unique opportunity for students to work alongside industry professionals.
The day encouraged the development of live engineering and production skills through hands-on experience with regards to lighting and sound. The majority of the students are either studying music or drama, with the experience gained from the day being used towards their coursework. Head of music at Gateacre, Rob Jones said “We are pleased to continue our long standing relationship with Adlib. It was a great day for all the students involved, whether it be backstage or performing.”
MD of Adlib and ex-Gateacre student, Andy Dockerty added “We are always delighted to be able to deliver these events as it gives a very real insight to the industry as opposed to the glamorised picture that can be painted.”
