As you may already know, I’m Assistant Technical Manger at The Classic Grand and look after the Lighting side of the venue.
Just before the venue opened way back almost 5 years ago the Technical Manager Iain McCormack (formally of Pro Sound Services) brought me in to look after the Lighting and Visual side of the venue.
At The Classic Grand we cover all sorts of events, from theater to dance, clubs to party’s, and from music to burlesque, and we have even had a church use the main hall as their Sunday morning ‘city center’ venue.
Each type of event has it’s own challenges which is what I love about the place, always different people coming in and out as well as the same faces coming back again and again.
Many big well known artists have graced the stages at The Classic Grand. The likes of The Stereophonics, Feeder, Adele, Grandmaster Flash, Combichrist, VNV Nation, Seasick Steve, Robyn, Amy MacDonald and many many more.
