Leading entertainment lighting supplier White Light is to continue its ongoing policy of supporting the next generation of lighting designers and technicians with a Graduates' Open Day on Wednesday July 7th at White Light's Wimbledon offices in London.

Aimed at anyone interested in lighting or considering a career in lighting, as well as teachers and other staff who support such students' lighting work, the day will provide the opportunity to catch up with the latest lighting technology, to learn more about lighting products and techniques through demonstrations, and to find out about the perils and pitfalls of spending life working in entertainment lighting by talking to guest speakers from the industry and staff from White Light.

Visitors will be able to play with some of the very latest products from manufacturers including MA Lighting, Martin Professional, Vari-Lite, Selecon and Strand Lighting, as well as other products from White Light's extensive hire and sales stocks. Refreshments will, of course, be provided! The Open Day will run from 11am to 5pm and anyone interested in attending should contact Aubs Tredget on 020 8254 4800 or by email to training@whitelightgroup.co.uk.

Schools who are unable to attend the Open Day might be interested in the latest offering from White Light's Training Initiative training and education scheme: the White Light Master Class. The Master Class will see White Light's Jason Larcombe, who holds a BA(Hons) in Lighting Design and is Vice-Chairman of the Association of Lighting Designers, visit schools to run a session of up to four hours for up to 30 students during which he will cover both the 'art' and 'practicalities' of lighting design: the principles of light, using those principles to illuminate a performer and stage, the tools of the trade, drawing a lighting plan and making the best use of resources, basic safety and establishing a career in lighting. The Master Classes will include hands-on access to equipment supplied by White Light.
