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 training@bristolsta.com 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. Here’s a full schedule for the week!
