Module: Flying and Rigging Design

Glastonbury Pyramid Stage

This module concentrates on the technology and engineering of concert rigging systems and automation systems. 

This essential discipline facilitates all live events that involve lighting, video and sound. 

It’s all too obvious from  recent incidents that when things go wrong, the consequences can be tragic. 

Properly understanding how to safely hang heavy loads and even gracefully moving heavy loads is very important and combines technical understanding, skill and experience to achieve it.
