The opening ceremony, with an invited guest list able to tour the building and watch student performances in the Chroma-Q Theatre, was a cross-section of suppliers, supporters and industry investors who are all committed to forging relationships with the Leeds City College to boost regional business opportunities and the local economy. AC Entertainment's Jonathan Walters and project manager Ben Taylor were in attendance. “We were delighted to partner with Leeds City College to help them to foster tomorrow’s backstage talent,” comments Walters. “The production industry is driven by creativity and innovation. However, an essential ingredient of this is the people working backstage who possess the technical knowledge and experience needed to deliver it. By ensuring that students are given access to the latest industry-standard equipment, it’s a winning outcome for everyone, which will help to meet the needs of employers in our industry. Our on-going partnership will be supporting the LCC and its students in a number of ways, with a view to it being a long-term initiative and resource investment.”
