Next Wednesday on The BACK LOUNGE, with a drastic shortage of crew & an opportunity for new crew coming in, we’re exploring how to encourage diversity in our workforce & back-stage. In particular we’re looking at ‘SHADOWING’. Our guest is amazing Tom Campbell – TPI Lighting Designer of the Year 2022 & one of the forces championing this initiative on Skunk Anansie’s tour. If you genuinely want to be part of the change & are in a position where you could offer someone a shadowing opportunity for the day to see what your job involves OR if you’re new to all this and want to get a foot in the door but are not sure what you want to do, this one’s for you. If the pandemic highlighted anything, it was a lack of understanding from Joe Public of the many different roles involved in making a show happen. Help can change that. Wed 1st June 6pm London

How can we make it stick and is there a dark side to all this we need to be mindful of? We’re joined this week by special guests Malle Kaas and Erin Lynch from WILM (Women in Live Music) – they’ll be sharing their experience of life on the road. Join us, this is an important one. Wednesday 7th July 6pm BST
