Improving the lighting

Better facilities for Old Buckenham Village Hall
The work in the Old Buckenham Village Hall to update the lighting system and stage curtaining has now been completed. After much fundraising within the village and some grants from Breckland District Council and the Norfolk Community Foundation, new equipment and wiring has been installed that will allow the Old Buckenham Players to put on their productions safely and with more panache.
On Saturday 11 February the new equipment was formally handed over to the Village Hall management. All the big expensive equipment is installed out of sight behind the stage but facilities are now available that will allow other hall users to operate the basic lighting on the stage. A small control panel, about the size of a computer keyboard, will switch on and dim various lights on the main lighting rig.
Other work carried out by the Old Buckenham Players has improved the facilities behind the main stage curtains with a new lighting rig and a mid-stage curtain having been installed.
A special celebratory evening of ‘Light Entertainment!’ is being arranged for Saturday 24 March to show off the new facilities with a series of sketches, songs and short radio plays. All residents of Old Buckenham and friends of Old Buckenham and the Players are invited along to this free evening in the Hall. More details later.
