Students did the College proud last week by raising over £700 for MeningitisUK in memory of College student Hannah Gwilliam whose life was tragically cut short by meningitis back in January. The fundraiser showcased a medley of bands that entertained a packed theatre of college students, friends and family. College bands Barely Shaven Monkeys, Children of the Sky, Fungus K and Phader all supported two headline acts – The Smokey Ramblers and Beneath the Reef. “In order to deliver a professional performance, we integrated a range of skills: music technology students ran the show and played in the bands, multi-media students produced the graphics and the media students did the filming,” said lecturer Alex Essex.
A-level student Hannah Jones, 17, said “students were dancing in the aisles, the gig was awesome.” The bands were a mixture of Indie and Rock, and metal band Children of the Sky did an instrumental set of famous film scores – Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters and Pirates of the Caribbean. “I enjoyed Phader, they played a Two Door Cinema Club cover version, it was cool!,” said Wane Cousins, Animal Management student. Phader vocalist, Ruth Vlismas, 18, sang to her biggest ever audience and said, “ I was a little nervous backstage, but as I soon as I started singing I was fine, I enjoyed the night and I think the audience did too.”
