Event Information

For one night only – engineering the business of show business

Peter Wheatcroft, Commercial Sound Engineer and AV Specialist

Live events attract huge crowds and rely on an array of sophisticated technologies to make them work. This talk will take you ‘behind the scenes’ to discover what is involved in the delivery of a sound experience that will be heard by up to 10,000 people but without destroying anyone’s hearing. The evening will be illustrated by images taken at events around the UK and include demonstrations of the techniques used to manage the sound in theatres, outdoors and on the airwaves. Come prepared to be informed, entertained and amazed!
