Rose Bruford and Hawthorn create new concert lighting
Rose Bruford and Hawthorn create new concert lighting

Working closely with renowned lighting designer, Liz Berry, students from Rose Bruford College alongside Hawthorn Ltd, tested to their limits some new lighting fixtures and designs which proved to be very illuminating. Liz Berry advised and encouraged the BA Lighting Design students to create innovative lighting infrastructures using the ground breaking GLP Impressions alongside Alpha Spot 300s controlled via an Avolites Pearl Tiger.  The bands commented on how the lighting really supplemented their own performances and were stunned by the punchy effects, and the lighting students found the equipment to be flexible and fun to work with.

Liz Berry and the students were delighted with this new collaboration.  Liz said:
"The students were very surprised at the brightness of both the fixtures and learned a lot from using them in their shows.  They were especially impressed by the Impressions as they did not expect an LED fixture to be so lightweight and powerful, and they liked the option of changing the lenses to achieve different beam sizes. I was impressed at the service from Hawthorn, who were very accommodating in giving us such great equipment.  They even delivered it ! And I would like to personally thank Hawthorn for their support."

Hansjörg Schmidt, Programme Director of Lighting Design at Rose Bruford, added:
“I am delighted with this new and groundbreaking collaboration. We always welcome an opportunity to work closely with exciting suppliers and Lighting Designers, to provide our students with a practical understanding of using the latest technology and it potential usage. Which in turn ensures that our graduates are in a position to push the industry forward when they start employment”?
