SSR Manchester - The Pigeon Has Landed
The Pigeon Has Landed
SSR students demonstrated their talents and skills at a recent festival in Manchester. Students from the SSR Live Sound course were given key roles assisting at The Hungry Pigeon Festival which took place in Piccadilly gardens over the recent bank holiday weekend.

Stuart Avery, the MD of the company who organised the event had this to say:
"I just wanted to write to let you know that the guys from SSR who helped out over the weekend at Hungry Pigeon were absolutely brilliant! Without exception, they were all helpful, friendly and responsible, and my partners and the other Hungry Pigeon staff were all very impressed with their professionalism and willingness to help out. I got a lot of feedback from them, and it seems they all got a lot out of the experience which is great. Their presence over the weekend was a really big help to us, and I’d definitely be happy to have some SSR students on board for future events."

The students really appreciated the opportunity to develop and practise their skills at a real event.

"Thanks to SSR for helping us to get this great opportunity. We learnt loads but at the same time we also realised how much we have learnt on the Live Sound course that has really prepared us for a career in the industry."
