Description

Hi there! We are a new society for anyone with an interest in stage lighting and sound.

Now in our 2nd year as a society, we hold weekly tech training for anyone who wants to learn more about the technical side of theatre, and we provide opportunities for students to help out with events on and off campus, small and large, in venues such as the Dixon Drama Studio and Central Hall.

We welcome new members whether you have done tech before or are completely new to lighting and sound. If you haven't done tech before, then don't worry! Our training sessions will cover all the skills you need to know, which you can then grow by shadowing on our shows. For experienced members, there are opportunities for helping to train new technicians, and to take on a management role for the events. Students from any department are welcome however being a member could be particularly be useful if you are a TFTV or Music student.

So if you're wondering how to do a lighting design, how a sound desk works or just want to play round with some visual effects, this is the society for you.

For more information, visit our website at yorktechsoc.org, or check out our Facebook page. Once you have become a member, please also join our Facebook Group to get updates on tech training sessions and to sign up for opportunities to get involved in shows.

For equipment hire, please visit our hires page.
