‘Not so much a speaker more a cast!’ said a club secretary after a visit to her society by our Talks Team, ‘and so informative and entertaining. Quite one of our best ever evenings,’
Did you know that BOAT gives illustrated talks about its productions? These cover topics such as designing and building sets, making or acquiring props and the history of BOAT. In pre-coronavirus days these talks were given to such organisations as Women’s Institutes, Rotary clubs and other groups at their venues. The talks can now be offered on Zoom or similar on-line social media. If your organisation would be interested in one of BOAT’s talks, please contact Eileen Rawlings on 01202 776390 to discuss the arrangements. The normal process would be for the organisation to set up the meeting and invite BOAT to co-host it. BOAT does not charge a set fee for these talks but is always grateful to receive a donation, however modest.
Some of the topics we cover are -
- ‘How it all began’ is about our formative days in the 1960s.
- ‘Getting the performance up and running’ brings you up to date with all that happens unseen.
- ‘Set design, build and lighting’ explains how we create mood and atmosphere
Engaging, witty, and a joy to watch
Not to be missed!
