5th WILM-Newsletter


# 05 Welcome!




WILM has had a great start to the year planning EVEN more exciting and educational workshops and events for our members. Most of our events are selling out, which is great news and encourages us to do bigger and better things.
Here are some of the highlights from the past three months. (If you would like to organise a workshop or meet up in your local area, please send us a mail at info@womeninlivemusic.eu)



In January we invited members to a walk & talk of the amazing production of The 1975 at the 02 Arena, London.
Stage manager Jack Dunnett took us on a journey around the production, whilst he told us about a typical day on tour. He told us about the huge amount of preparation that goes ahead months before the first gig. Jack also gave us some insider tips, how to get the gig as a stage manager – and how to stay on out on the road.
A big thanks to Jack for having us and to all the members who attended.


In February WILM went to ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) and met with many friends and supporters. We had a great time with those who came to our meet up and our dinner afterwards.

Also in
February co-director Hannah Brodrick spoke at a panel discussion with other women in the events industry at the Event Production Show 2019.
We had a great time and it was fantastic to meet some WILM members there.


At the beginning of March we held our FIRST EVER lighting workshop alongside Shadow Me Women and ChamSys who provided brilliant training and consoles!
Held in the wonderful Shepherds Bush Empire, members received hands on training, learned the basics of DMX and programming and the social afterwards was definitely a night to remember. We can’t wait to put on another one!

We are also delighted to announce that we were able to offer another internship for WILM members for the Britannia Row Productions Live Sound Training Course. Congratulations to Sofie Hunter who has just started the 3 months training! We are excited to hear all about it.
