Aviva Studios and Factory International Visit and Tour

A group from our Factory Schools project had a VIP experience at Aviva studios on Friday 3rd November. The group consists of a mix of A1 and A2 students from our semi-formal pathway along with three of our formal learners. They were welcomed by our hosts with a few interactive introduction  games in the Social Area. They were then brought up to the warehouse where they experienced a giant walkway, shrouded in silk, with funnelled ends, and a huge screen overhead to project Luke Halls’s many-imaged videos that were not used in the Free Your Mind experience. This was a fully immersive experience for our students where they had the comfort of huge beanbags to relax and take in the experience.

We were then offered the opportunity to take a look back stage to see where all the magic happens. They were taken along the route of the ‘Mega Wall’ that would open up to make the warehouse twice as big. This corridor lead into the 1,600 seat theatre where the Free Your Mind performance took place.

All pupils had a brilliant experience and would like to thank Factory Schools for the continued experiences they are providing for our school.
