The final student-led event of 2017 was organised and managed by two Creative Media Production students, Jack Morris and Landre Daniels. Live at the Chapel has been a series of music events, often simply being live-streamed across the internet, but this one saw four acts perform to a lively audience and added to the students’ learning experience.


Jack and Landre are both first years at The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC), undertaking an introductory diploma, and shared the roles for the event between them. Jack was the main events organiser, with a focus on promotion and health and safety. On the night, Jack had the role of live sound engineer as well as organising the acts for the show.


Landre’s primary planning roles included catering, logistics and carrying out the risk assessment on the venue. During the event, he was in charge of front of house and the box office.


“Both Jack and Landre have undertaken various roles to fulfil the criteria of this course module,” said Graham Wilde, Media Team Leader, who was on hand at the event to support his student team and to provide live updates via social media (@ChapelArtsEvent on Twitter).


The audience, although small in number, was appreciative of the different styles of music played by the acts: Ellie Wait, Lance, Lara, and John Pullin. Dancing took place, as well as a lot of laughter, and both Jack and Landre felt that the evening was a success!
