STA Newsletter – BOpSFest Preparation

Last week was training week – hopefully everybody who attended any of the sessions found it interesting and learned something new. If you have any feedback or thoughts on additional sessions that should be run, contact [email protected] and Tom (our Training Manager) will work to make future training sessions even better!

Happening now is BOpSFest, where BOpS (Bristol Operatic Society) are putting on a pair of operas. This week is the build week for both performances, where we’ll be in the Winston Theatre from 17:15 each evening (13:15 on Wednesday and possibly middayish at the weekend) preparing for these shows.
