So over the last month or so I’ve been working on adding lots of extra bits to my website. The Gallery has been updated with some recent production photographs and designs, plus some more “fun” photos! Our third season is well underway now and we have our new digital cinema projector installed so will be starting to show films at the Spa Centre. There really is something for everyone at the .

Stay safe in this wet and windy weather. That’s all for now.

So it’s been a while since I posted anything on hear but here’s an update on how things have been going.

I started working at the Royal Spa Centre & Town Hall back in April last year as Technical Supervisor. It was mid-season for the theatre so I was thrown in at the deep end and started working on shows from day 1. Most of my work is done at the Royal Spa Centre which is a receiving house and has a wide variety of shows coming through. From stand up comedy to bands, plays to lectures there is always some new challenge to overcome. The tech team is now up to five of us and I deputise for the Technical Manager, with three theatre technicians underneath me. We have bonded well as a team and each have our strong areas, as well as covering all the other roles required.

As well as the one night shows I got to design the lighting for Spa Opera’s production of Carousel, as well as the professional pantomime that we produced (with Imagine Theatre) with Aladdin. Panto was long, with two shows daily, but lots of fun. We’re about to head into my third season here and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I will try and get some photos of the recent shows up here in due course.

After a year and a half working freelance for Pinnacle Crew I have now been offered the role of Technical Supervisor at the Royal Spa Centre and Town Hall, based in Leamington Spa. I’m excited to continue my career in technical theatre here and start next week!

The complex has a variety of shows from stand-up comedians and local amateur shows to well known singers and musicals (check out the What’s On page here). I will hopefully get the chance to update my website more often now, although you can always stay up-to-date with me by following my twitter feed @tim_clare
