Week 6 - 30th August - 2nd September 2016
In one word, the whole day was simply amazing. Today was the day of our event and even though the first half of the day started off quite hectic, as members of the team were not there or were running late, the Event Academy Students who were present were able to take responsibilities to ensure we were on schedule. The day was filled with running around to gather last minute essentials and making documents for the event which I really enjoyed doing as the Project Manager.
The second half of day was getting ourselves ready to move to the venue and set up, which I would say was the most stressful part as we were all not sure of how we wanted to decorate the venue, however we managed to use our initiative as a team and also got help from the Better Bankside and Globe team to successful set up for our event.
I was front of house for our event which I must say I enjoyed as I was excited about welcoming guest to come and see the result of our work over the past 6 weeks. The event was very intimate and I felt that the atmosphere was very positive and lively as guest were networking with Event Academy Student to find out about our experience during this program. The performances were all very creative and all had the modern take on Shakespeare which was one of our objectives.
I felt like our event really did come together and we successfully managed to put on a show production which achieved its main objectives.
