ISSBA Event Review - January 2020 MTM Networking

Review of our first networking event of 2020 written by Merie Sennett, Spartan Consultants.

It was a chilly morning on the 29th January when we gathered at the New Wolsey Theatre to kick off our 2020 networking but we received a very warm welcome with tea, coffee and biscuits. There was a SPARTAN LOGO smallfantastic turnout and it was lovely to see lots of familiar faces but also to welcome some new people that hadn't been to an ISSBA event before. All of them commented on how friendly everyone was and how welcoming the event was.

During the event, Lucy Allen from the New Wolsey, conducted backstage tours which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Lucy showed us everything including underneath the stage where the trapdoors are worked right up to the lighting rigs up above while entertaining us with stories and theatre superstitions.

Dick Calvesbert organised a raffle for ISSBA's charity of the year, Over the Rainbow Children's Charity and ISSBA Chair, Graham Barton was celebrating a special day so he was presented with a cake while we sang Happy Birthday!

All in all, it was another very enjoyable ISSBA event and I'd like to say a massive thank you to the New Wolsey Theatre for sponsoring and hosting us.
