Are you a woman or non-binary person interested in putting on live music events? Get started on the basics in this course.

This workshop will take place over two evenings on 6 and 13 August upstairs at The Golden Lion, Todmorden. Get there a few minutes before to start at 7.30pm, finishing at 9pm.

This hands-on, free workshop run by Calderdale Sound Women Network provides a solid introduction to live sound for those wanting to know how to use a PA, as well as those who perform and want to be able to converse more confidently with sound engineers about their requirements. The workshop includes a mixture of theory and practical work covering the following areas, and culminating in a small live performance:

• Understanding how to connect everything together
• Understanding the mixing desk and signal flow through it
• Using Aux sends to send audio to stage monitors and apply effects
• Setting up for a small gig and running the desk

This workshop is intended for women and non-binary people to take part in. The course is free of charge and funded by Arts Council England as part of YSWN Amplify and CSWN‘s The Valley project.
