Help With Set Building 2017

The dates for set builds for 2017 are listed below.

You don’t need tools – though it could help if you can bring a battery-powered drill and any other small tools you own. You do need a willingness to do two things: first, to work on producing high-quality stage sets; and, second, to join in discussions and to put forward your own ideas on how best to achieve our aims.

The set builds are on Saturdays, starting from 9am and going on to around 5pm. You don’t have to work all those hours. Any time you can put in is great, although you should know that we generally stop around 12:30pm for lunch prepared and supplied by ETS, so you won’t want to miss that.

We’re a friendly bunch of people with varying skill levels, and the set builds are both challenging and fun. If you can come, email David Blakey or text/call 027 495 3794 in advance, so that we can plan the day – and include you in the lunch.
